Red Road Herbs Pairs Herbs and Nature for Better Health

Turning off the county road, you know exactly where you are. First you spot the signs. Then your eyes light on the herb garden. You have arrived at Red Road Herbs, east of Stanton, Nebraska.

The next pleasure is meeting Rachel Liester. You realize immediately this business is also Rachel’s passion. She loves teaching others how to use plants in everyday life for better health.

Kids and Carrots

Nothing says happy and healthy like an image of children harvesting, cleaning, or eating a carrot. Seriously, not everyone likes carrots, but when you see a child gardening, harvesting carrots, preparing them, or eating a bunch of carrots, you just know there is something good, wholesome, and healthy about that image. And of course, it doesn’t have to be carrots – beets, cabbages, cucumbers, etc. all work too.

As wild habitat continues to disappear from the landscape, so too do wild pollinators - the native bees, bats, birds, and butterflies that are dependent on this floral diversity to survive and thrive.

This wide-scale decline has triggered alarm for good reason: we need pollinators to eat and live. They are responsible for 85% of the world’s flowering plants, including more than two-thirds of the world’s crop species, according to the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.
