Reduce, reuse, recycle. Eat locally-grown food. Get back to the land. These are far from fads. They are ways to cultivate a healthier, sustainable life and environment. While we live in a culture that predominantly values convenience and profit over health and the environment, a new and green conscious is emerging. People are increasingly interested in eco-friendly living and curious about where and how their food is grown and disposed. On this season of Grow, we’ll take a journey from an organic wheat farm to the cellars of a local craft brewery, where farmers and brewers collaborate to support local agriculture and expand public awareness of local food systems. We’ll drive three hours south of Atlanta to visit a farm that’s internationally recognized as a model for holistic land stewardship and animal welfare. We’ll also take you to the countryside of Southern Appalachia, where a group of women herbalists forage and hand-process wild plant medicine to help Georgians reclaim their health and sustain the environment. Join us on this season of Grow as we share the stories of an emerging eco-friendly, healthy Georgia.
Join us on this episode of Grow as we get to know a group of women herbalists who grow, forage and brew medicinal plants into vinegar as part of their mission to help people reclaim their health, connect with the Earth and preserve the land. We’ll harvest Holy Basil and learn about a tree whose pink flowers alleviate anxiety and depression.
