The cultivation of medicinal herbs today is justified for the following reasons:
- Organic farming protects the environment and very useful resources can be prepared.
- There is also the possibility of purchasing medicinal plants that cannot be found in shops.
- The intense interaction with nature and the work outdoors acts as a healthy exercise for the body and mind.
We do not intend to encourage self-medication, we are simply describing some medicinal plants that grow spontaneously in this region, which you can find on your hikes. We only want to be a help to recognize them, protect them and also ensure that the most effective medicines are most often found in the named "bad herbs" ..
We want to share with you the knowledge that every creature, animal or vegetable, is justified within the natural basis of life. E.g., ivy, yarrow, plantain, etc., are very useful medicinal plants that often appear on the lawn of our parks, and which we do not grant any value.
I would like to give you one last warning: The content of these statements is based on reading several books and, above all, on daily observation of the area in which the camp is located. We don't want to be masterful with it, nor do we want to research other copies, which we of course respect. Our intention is to arouse your curiosity and encourage you to develop it.
