USDA is full of ex Monsanto executives.  Surprise.   This is why they protect and promote GMOs as well.  We are living under corporate fascism where corporations are ruling our country de facto through employee placement within the government as well as paying off politicians, and now the TPP is a global extention of that arm.  We not only need to keep the beast from growing wings, we have to completely incapacitate it.
 
USDA scientists are being harassed and their research is being censored or suppressed, especially research related to neonicotinoid insecticides — a leading driver of bee declines globally. 
WASHINGTON— Environmentalists, beekeepers, farmworkers, farmers, fisheries and food-safety organizations sent a letter to U.S. Department of Agriculture Inspector General and the co-chairs of the White House Task Force on Pollinator Health today urging an investigation into recent reports that USDA scientists are being harassed and their research is being censored or suppressed, especially research related Read More

Because past environmental destruction was the result of ignorance, we can easily forgive it. Today, we are better informed. Therefore, it’s essential that we make an ethical examination of what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations. Ours is clearly a pivotal generation. We have global communication and yet confrontation is more common than dialogue.

Whether you want it to or not, the TPP directly affects your freedom of choice and right to liberty in every way.
 
"There’s an important issue out there you may never have heard of, which is just what its proponents would like...It’s a blatant attack on labor, farmers, food safety, public health and even national sovereignty.” Check out this New York Times article to learn what the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is, and why we need to stop it in its tracks: http://orgcns.org/1JdSWrO

Fantastic plant, will warm and open up congestion...  Take care if harvesting, it's not an aggressive grower.
 
Polypodium glycyrrhiza (Licorice Fern)

from our hike with the inus the other day. These ferns do grow on the ground, in damper, humus rich areas of the forest floor and nurse logs, but they are most abundant on mossy bigleaf maple trunks.

Unlike most ferns that propogate mainly via spores, these have a rhizome that creeps along under the moss, sprouting out one single frond at intervals, as well as producing spores on the underside of these fronds.  The rhizome itself is quite sweet, with a licorice flavour to it.  

First Nations peoples used the rhizomes for medicinal purposes to help soothe sore throats.  The rhizomes were also chewed just because they taste sweet, and were also added to bitter medicines to make them more palatable.

Drink your vitamins!!
There is deep nutrition in weedy herbal infusions that can fill a glaring gap in our modern, processed diets. As a passionate herbalist and vegetarian who’s endeavored to pay close attention to the nutrients in my diet, I found myself wondering: Can nourishing herbal infusions replace a daily multivitamin?
