Urban weed collection nurturing the natural ecology

文字-A A +A

Weeds grow everywhere around our cities, and people often spray herbicides to inhibit their growth when they become too invasive. Such actions destroy the fragile environment and ecology and ignore the role of weeds in activating the land's vitality. Today, some people advocate picking weeds by hand and incorporating them into our lives in the spirit of sustainability.

The wide variety of grasses available to us are like treasures free to be picked on our travels throughout each day. Rich in nutrients, once collected and dried, these weeds can be brewed into delicious herbal teas. Through the establishment of tea-making workshops, one can share the unique fragrance of weeds from different regions; through food, we can interact with the land and establish a connection between man and nature. While collecting, a slower pace is needed to feel the earth's message through each plant. Hopefully, as more people begin to enjoy the fun of urban gathering, calm down, drink tea, and coexist with nature, we can work together to protect the land where we live.

城市雜草採集 孕育土地自然生態

雜草蔓生在我們城市的周遭,人們會為了抑制生長太茂密而噴灑除草劑,破壞環境生態的同時,忽略雜草扮演活化土地生機的角色,當代採集發起人提倡以親手採草,將雜草融入生活,實踐永續環境的精神。

茶罐裡盛裝的各式草珠是每次出行採拾的珍寶,這些植物蘊含豐富營養素,將採集回來的雜草製成青草茶飲,透過開設青草茶製作體驗工坊,分享不同地區獨有的土地香氣,用飲食與土地互動,締結人與自然之間的情感。採集是另一種生活步調,以雜草感受大地的訊息,希望更多人一同參與城市採集之樂,靜下心、喝口茶,與自然共存,同時保育我們共同生活的土地。
