Too much of a good sting

Cardiff Report written by Michael

With lighter evenings for our runs it's finally starting to feel like Spring time.

Tonight, we returned to Cwtch Together to help once more...It was time for a wipe down and clean up inside the hall to get those grubby marks from the radiators, doors and walls wherever possible. Inside were our task organiser, Sarah along with Imy, Lucy and Benjamin, whilst outside were Darren, Andrew and Dylan sweeping and weeding down the side of the hall. Finally, around the back and battling the carpet of nettles were Lucy, Su, Dylan and Jonathan.

It was all go against those pesky nettles as the group were hard at work with secatuers, loppers and shears, then rakes and spades were the tools of choice. it time?

Learning Time

Urtica dioica L., also known as stinging nettle, is a perennial plant. It is a plant that’s edible and has nutritional and medicinal properties. Young leaves can be used to make curries, herb soups, and sour soups. The root of the stinging nettle is used to treat mictional difficulties associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia, while the leaves are used to treat arthritis, rheumatism, and allergic rhinitis. Its leaves are abundant in fiber, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidant compounds like polyphenols and carotenoids, as well as antioxidant compounds like polyphenols and carotenoids. Stinging nettle has antiproliferative, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, analgesic, anti-infectious, hypotensive, and antiulcer characteristics, as well as the ability to prevent cardiovascular disease, in all parts of the plant (leaves, stems, roots, and seeds). Stinging nettle improves fish reproductive performance, making it a cost-effective aquaculture plant. Fertilizer and insecticides can be made from the plants.

So maybe it's time to rethink the classic "stinging nettle".
