Spring is always an exciting time in the garden, after the cold of the winter season the soil warms and an array of plants begin to emerge. It is no accident that edible medicinal plants like cleavers, chickweed, dandelion and miners lettuce grow to demonstrate a transition from winter to spring. Our bodies are in need of the green nutrition these plants provide. Mineral and vitamin rich, full of life giving chlorophyll to stimulate the liver, kidneys and lymphatic systems.
A spring garden can be a wild meadow or a formal garden patch of greens constructed to meet individual needs. However plants manifest themselves in your life they can be enjoyed as a source of nutrition or used for a specific medicine. It is about food as medicine and medicine as food.
At Phytofarm in the spring our products and workshops focus particular on the culinary/nutritional benefits of plants.
