About Ginkgo: Each fall, Avena's gardeners climb wooden ladders to hand-harvest ginkgo leaves from the tall trees at the entrance to our biodynamic gardens. The ginkgo trees are gentle gatekeepers, inviting visitors to enter into the magical and healing world of herbs. This is a favorite fall harvest of ours, as the green, golden fan shaped leaves are a delight to work with. After we gather, our head production specialist tinctures them immediately in organic alcohol. Gingko leaf promotes healthy circulation and memory and ensures good blood flow to the brain.
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.
