About Astragalus: Beds of astragalus plants grow in Avena's biodynamic gardens. This leguminous herb benefits the soil by fixing nitrogen and improving overall soil health. In autumn, Avena's gardeners dig many yellow-colored astragalus roots when the plants are three to four years old. Long revered in Traditional Chinese Medicine, this sweet, nourishing root maintains healthy immune and digestive functions, strengthens depleted immune and respiratory functions, helps the body be more resilient in adapting to environmental and emotional stressors, improves integrity of one’s energetic boundary, and encourages a person to stand tall and meet life’s challenges with presence and inner strength.
Biodynamic Agriculture is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to gardening and farming — one that we at Avena Botanicals have been practicing since 1998.
Around the world, people are studying and applying Biodynamic principles and practices in gardens, farms, and orchards to support the Earth’s healing and resilience. Based on the work of philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Biodynamics has continued to evolve and grow since 1924. From seed to bottle, we are dedicated to caring for our garden... soil, trees, medicinal plants, pollinators, each other, and you, with integrity, respect, and love.
