Weeds Deserve Respect!
I was talking with my 10 year old cousin about plants that could be used to help her improve her current situation. Dandelion Roots were at the top of that list. "Dandelion? But that's a weed!" She was so surprised to find out that a weed could also be a very useful as a supplement.
Weeds deserve more respect, less uprooting, and zero herbicides. Weeds are defined as unwanted plants that thrive in a new habitat and are deemed a problem. This summer let's look at weeds as a solution, since they remedy many health problems. Some of my other favorite "weeds" include St. John's Wort (pictured), Wild Lettuce, Plantain, Chickweed, and Teasel.
