Nature Connection Challenge - Day 82
Nature Connection Challenge - Day 82 - Forage Red Clover
Red Clover (Trifolium pretense) is an edible and medicinal plant. It is known as a blood cleanser and deoxer in the herbalist community. Blossoms and leaves are used in tea and tinctures. As food, red clover leaves and blossoms are added to salads, soups and sauteed with vegetables.
Your challenge today is to locate red clover in an area where no pesticides or herbicides have been sprayed and collect some of the plants. Be sure you have permission to forage on the land if it is not your own. Remember to harvest responsibly, only taking a small amount of each plant (although red clover is found in abundance in many areas!). How will you use red clover?
