Herbs on the Traidhos Farm

The farm team has been working with students to create a new herb garden using mud bricks to define a planting shape. While this has been developed, the farmer staff have been cultivating different species of herbs to see which grows best in the farm conditions.

They are delighted that there is now a plentiful supply of peppermint. During this project, we have learned many stories and different folk lore surrounding the herbs. Many of the farmers are Karen people who believe in the local wisdom that peppermint should not be picked if there is a cut or any blood on your hand or if there is blood escaping anywhere from your body.
