In Canmore, at this one little store, I saw a cute little tree kit for planting your own 'Seaberry' tree. Of course, being the vegan hippie environmentalist that I am, I just HAD to buy it.The day after we returned from our trip, I got to work! The kit came with everything I need- a pot and saucer-ish thing, a bad of soil, seeds, and good instructions.
Seaberry seeds are so cute- they remind me of chubby flax seeds.
Now I just have to wait. :) By the way, isn't the pot cute? It's biodegrable, and I'm not 100% sure but I THINK that it might be made with recycled material as well.
And, what are seaberries, exactly?
"Seaberry , A.K.A. Sea Buckthorn, is a unique berry imported from Russia that is known to support a variety of bodily systems. Healthier cholesterol levels, thyroid and liver functions, elasticity of the blood vessels, superior healing of wounds, skin conditions and reproductive functions are a few areas that benefit from the remarkable Seaberry. Other advantages of Seaberry are its ability to help eliminate the excessive salts of heavy metals.
Because Seaberry is rich in A, C, E vitamins, tocopherols, oleic and linoleic acids, it is also used to help combat anemia and vitamin deficiencies. Seaberry is also a good source of Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids. "
The company who sells these trees is Seracon Candles. You can see the other varieties here.
