Our Common Roots: A film on the Healing Power of Herbs (including many you could grow in your garden)
We may be able to grow beautiful gardens in our yards, and even produce gardens that fill our dinner tables, but can we identify which plants strengthen our immune system or combat an illness? Or which plants have been held as sacred with the indigenous people’s of the area? Learning about the medicinal aspects of the plants we grow in our gardens has never been easier than watching the film “Our Common Roots”. With a fellow local Winnipeg herbalist and film-maker, we hope you can help support this project and share it with your friends — gardens are more than a beautiful use of your yard, or even an indulgence of flavour and taste — they can strengthen our mind, body and soul and help generations balance the dis-order and dis-ease that continually challenge our health.
