In the words of Scandinavian naturalist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778), “Nature reveals its greatest miracles in the smallest of things”. These wise words are as relevant today as they were then. The immeasurable wealth of nature is revealed each and every day in an impressive display of abundance. All we have to do is open our eyes to the priceless gifts of nature, just as our ancestors have done for thousands of years. People around the world have always explored and studied their natural environments in order to be able to use selected wild plants, such as herbs, berries, and mushrooms, specifically for their own purposes. We too are fascinated by the repertoire offered by Mother Nature and would like to introduce you to our “11 natural born heroes”.
