Amazing Nature Botany Curation: July 2021 Report #1

We appreciate your posts and the following ones are randomly selected because of their botanical qualities. They are manually curated on behalf of the Amazing Nature Community.

First a brief explanation about Botany:

Botany is a broad term covering scientific study of plants. It could be from a small living organism to a tree. Included would be flora, fungi, lichens, trees and flowering plants.

We are also interested in plants for their psychological (good for the mind & soul) benefits.

Through botany, medicinal properties are discovered from nature. Food, medicines, parks, forests, pollution and much more have been improved with botanical knowledge. Botanists search for alternatives from the harmful chemicals used on crops and the deforestation that has damaged the health of our planet.

Herbalism, with ancient people identifying edible, medicinal or poisonous plants, is the original of Botany. Our ancestors and Native peoples were botanists in their own right. They knew of the healing properties to be found in plants but much of that knowledge had been lost to future generations.


Now I would like to bring your attention to the curated posts and ask you to show some love to the amazing authors:


  • @apnigrich appreciates the forest and stream where he lives after spending five years studying in the city. He knows the important of the trees for the earth and for our health.

  • @papilloncharity invites us to walk with him to the flooding river as he takes photos and a video. All of the low lying houses in the townships have been flooded and many Cape City suburbs have also not escaped the floods

Floods are a concern in agriculture and for public health because of possible chemicals that have been thrown into the river but the spreading waters can also bring salt and nutrients to the land.

  • @madushanka checks out his mother-in-law’s garden and sees how her plants are thriving since his last visit. Not only vegetables and edible leaves but also fruits, such as pineapple, are planted in his mother-in-law's garden. Even a small natural organic garden will give a chemical free diet.
