I tried dandy blend for the first time today and it was surprisingly good. I normally drink my coffee black and it didn't have quite the same depth as strong coffee, but it was a pleasant no caffeine substitute.
This pic shows my students and I maxing out the "greens" scene down in the San Francisco Bay Area back in February 2017 with some TWENTY (wild harvested) SPECIES! All this without even really breaking a sweat. The NorCal salad bar is absolutely EXPLODING once again and you'd need a semi truck trailer to harvest all the species available currently...seriously. This was a two day (16 hour) class complete with: powerpoint lecture, hands-on harvesting & kitchen preparation, and a comprehensive field exploration spanning multiple plant communities from the Marin County sea-level salt marshes all the way up to the chaparral slopes of Mt. Tamalpais at 2,572'. What an herbal adventure!!! This was the first time I've run this class in a two day format and it became quite clear that it could EASILY be extended to a full week-long workshop (if not longer). The only problem would be finding enough students THAT obsessed with edible & medicinal leafy greens :) Bountiful Spring: Edible & Medicinal “Greens" of California--Weekend Workshop and Field Exploration.

HERB OF THE DAY:
Dandelion acts as a natural diuretic, causing kidneys to increase the volume of urine and expel the extra salt accumulated inside the body. By stimulating more urine production, Dandelion affects the blood volume and water balance in your body, causing excess fluid to move out of the body tissues. The potential changes brought about by the herb in fluid balance, is a reduction in fluid retention and the lowering of blood pressure. The diuretic effect of Dandelion is believed to be due to taraxasterol. This plant sterol removes fluids from spaces between tissues and the skin. It tightens the muscles by this action and is often used by bodybuilders for this effect. The most important aspect of the diuretic action of Dandelion is that the herb also contains Potassium. Take care of your kidneys today! In return your health will turn around for the better😊
