The Coalition actively investigates non-herbicidal methods that control or eliminate kudzu. Its activities take place mostly in urban areas. Site beautification is one objective, and saving trees is another. Volunteers are "in the patch" several days a week.
What we learn in experiments and site work is shared freely in formal education sessions, explained during informal presentations to interested groups (including garden clubs, Master Gardeners, and the Native Plant Society), reported in our newsletters, or posted on this website. Our annual "Kudzu Kapers" event in Spartanburg is another way that we communicate with the general public.
We actively solicit volunteers to help with site work and other activities. Young folks make enthusiastic volunteers, and the Coalition partners with schools in our "Students Knock Out Kudzu" program.
