Grow Your Own Celery!

One of my favorite places to get helpful health information is the Hippocrates Health Institute, a non profit health institute based in Florida. Their website is chock full of tips on healthy living, nutrition and alternative therapies. Visit them today at http://www.hippocratesinst.org! A big thank you to Hippocrates Health Institute for letting us share this quick tip with you on how to grow celery right in your own back yard.

What did the cucumber say to the celery?

A: "Quit stalking me!"

Have you priced organic celery lately? HHI Greenhouse Manager Brian Hetrich shares the perfect solution for you -- grow your own!
You know how lots of folks cut off and throw away the base of the celery bunch? Instead, you can put it in the ground and it will grow back! Start by soaking the base in a saucer with about a half inch of water for a few days and then plant it outside. Celery likes fertile well-drained soil, partial shade and frequent watering. You may never have to buy celery again!
Brian Hetrich is responsible for growing all of the living foods at Hippocrates Health Institute in the greenhouse and organic garden. As part of the Life Transformation Program, he teaches classes to guests on gardening, juicing and raising sprouts and wheatgrass. A naturopathic doctor, Brian left his private practice in Maryland to come to Hippocrates in 2012. Visit our website to learn more about the benefits of wheatgrass and living foods.
