Rowland Alston and his crew visited the Coalition during August 2006 to prepare a video segment for the South Carolina Educational Television program "Making It Grow!". It was broadcast January 23, 2007, and you can view the video from here (streaming video). Visit the Making It Grow! website for other interesting content.

The taping took place in Spartanburg at the Coalition's test area behind the YMCA on Pine St., and at Beacon St. behind the Beacon Drive-In. We thank Roland and the crew for helping us get the word out about new methods for kudzu control: How to not make it grow! All photographs below were taken August 2006.
