Wear smooth outer cloth­ing that won’t al­low seeds to hitch­hike. Don’t wear shoes with deep tread. Make sure a plant is not in­va­sive be­fore buy­ing and plant­ing it. Check out ex­actly which seeds are in your bag of seed mix. Read state reg­u­la­tions be­fore bring­ing fire­wood on your camp­ing trip. Avoid shar­ing plant cut­tings with neigh­bors or friends. Pull weeds in your gar­den be­fore they ma­ture. Vol­un­teer with your lo­cal park or ar­bore­tum.
