Soil Association on Facebook for dandelions


The new me is eating bits of nature in the raw. Last week I was on nettles and gorse. Now it’s dandelion.

I taste its sweet petals. Mnnn. I am a dandelion fan.

What a bright-looking flower. Dandelions are medicinal. If you can’t get to pick it, try this organic herb tea.

Dandelions are also a good sign real food is growing organically. There are more wild flowers on organic farms than soil deadened by farm chemicals.

God bless the Soil Association – it fights off threats to dandelions.

Protecting dandelions from toxic chemicals is good news for organic food, keeping it real and more nutritious.

I love a good ban. The Soil Association’s pioneering standards (and here) say no to weed-killing chemicals and GM technology. Thus the dandelion lives free.

It’s exciting to help nature (that’s farm animals too. And human ones).

So do connect with the Soil Association on Facebook and join like-minded fans.

Together we can build a healthy, tasty, real food-loving future.

PS Check out those cute dandelions growing in the same fields as my local organic veg. Good sign, eh?
