How did Himalayan blackberry get here?

himalayan blackberryWe get asked the question "how did invasive blackberries get to Kirkland" all the time at volunteer events. Check out this great radio segment that KUOW did to answer that exact question. Listen to or read the article and then join us at an upcoming volunteer event to get up close and personal with some Himalayan blackberry (if the berries are ripe, we encourage you to eat them).
