Day 78: A Wild Edibles Tour
So tonight I took myself up to Newmarket and went to a women’s wellness circle and Wild Edible tour. Basically, it was time spent outside for 2 hours, walking in nature and learning about different plants that are found right here in Ontario that we can eat and make into all sorts of yummy, or just plain medicinal things that are high in all sorts of nutrients. It literally blew my mind.
I will write more about this tomorrow, because being the student of life that I am, I took a ton of notes, and now I have to try and decipher my half scribbled in the dusk light writing and then organize them into legible thoughts.
But one idea that I did take away from tonight that I would like to share with you is that all of the plants that grow and prosper locally are the ones that best serve and protect the natives of the area. If you are from the Golden Horseshoe of Toronto, then you will be able to better absorb the positive properties of an apple let’s say that was grown right here, because that same apple that has been growing in the same sunshine as you, and weathering the same storms as you and fending off the same pathogens as you, AND survived, is filled to the brim with nutrients that you can use. That gets translated by your body into positive energy.
Which I think is brilliant in it’s obviousness.
It would make sense that those plants and fruits are able to better sustain us, because we are both natives of the energy. And if you are an immigrant, than I think that through a process of naturalization, you can become acclimatized to those special nutrients too, over time.
And on that note I say good night. I have so many thoughts swimming around in my head right now, but not enough time to actually process them, and plus this cleanse really does take a lot out of you, so I really should be getting a lot more sleep. God that sentence makes me feel old. But whatever, I’m young at heart and thats what counts. So good night again, and if by chance you have a free moment, take yourself outside and have a look on the ground. I’m sure you will be able to find 5 species you never noticed before and now have to go look up just to find out. Which I wish they made an app for…
