god’s good greenery

A case for eating your vegetables, heeding herbal remedies and believing in botany. (And yet I’m fairly certain God forgives us our desserts.)

Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. -Genesis 1:29, NIV

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. -Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food

A weed is a plant whose virtue is not yet known. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favour compared with the products of nature, the living cell of the plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life.” – Thomas Edison
