Less than a century ago gardening was a necessity for many, and the use of herbs was common medical practice. We have become so dependent for whats convenient, and for instant results that we seem to have skipped a generation on basic homesteading principles, such as growing your own food or treating common illness with natural remedies. I find it amazing the amount of young adults that I know who have never planted a garden, and would not know how to grow and harvest their own food if they needed or wanted to. I also find it amazing how quick doctors are willing to fill out prescriptions for every aliment under the sun, when there are so many natural remedies that have been practiced for thousands of years with proven track records having no harmful side effects!
However I am encouraged of the recent movement of consumers fighting back, demanding the right to know what is in their food, products, and medicine, and to see many taking the steps educating themselves and households of such subtle dangers.
If you want to learn more about edible and medicinal plants, I would like to share a great website that I have stumbled upon, and that is www.learningherbs.com. The website is packed full of valuable information that offers amazing products as well. One of the products that I particularly think is great that will help the entire family learn more on edible and medicinal plants is the board game Wildcraft.
This game not only teaches teamwork, but over 25 medicinal and edible plants used in most first aid applications as well. This makes a perfect gift that the entire family will enjoy and benefit from!
