My grand-daughter (aged four) saw my dog eating grass in my garden.(Dogs chew grass to cause them to "vomit" any hairball.) She asked me if we could eat grass.I told her that we cannot eat this type of grass. Of course, that led to other questions.
It made me wonder how many young people know how much humans depend on grass for certain types of food. Humans can, and have done, live on nuts,berries,fruits of all kinds. But grass?
Wheat,Barley, Oats, Corn, Rye, are all grasses. Grass is used for all sorts of things from mats to houses. (Bamboo is a grass!)
If you are a meat eater, the animals you eat live on grass. If you eat bread, you are eating grass.
I would say that grass is the most important, almost essential, herb on the planet!
Yes, the most abundant plant on the Earth; grass! It's magic!
