Suzanne Thompson Nip the Knotweed
Putting Invasive Knotweed On a Starvation Diet

But, after all, it is 2020—and stranger things have happened than the turn Thompson took in May of this year, when she founded an all-volunteer campaign to fight that awful plant. Says Thompson, “We don’t spray it. We cut it.” Then she adds, “We starve it.”
