Having just picked ‘wild greens’ — dandelion, violet, and plantain — and eaten them in a lovely lunch salad, I came across this post, quite synchronistically.
Perfect timing, and a gorgeous photo of just one of the many healthy meals you can make from … you got it … wild plants that grow around you.
This is one of several ‘reclaimed arts’ of the Wise Woman path, and a lovely way to connect with the spirit of and place where we live, as well as with the deep roots of our ancestors, who did just this very thing.
Thanks to Charlie for sharing this great intel on the humble and yet incredibly nutrient-rich dandelion and violet.
Have a look and see for yourself.
