Signs of Spring in our Gardens
3/29/2010 9:37:33 AM

Old man winter just won’t give up here! Just when we thought he was gone for good, he returned again. For nearly a week, we had sun and our ducks were running all over the garden, having fun and looking for something to eat. Then it snowed and we had to put them back in the greenhouse—at least for now, until it warms up again.

Many plants are still in our greenhouses, waiting to be planted in our gardens.In the Customer Center at Weleda Naturals, in Wetzgau, Germany, the telephone is ringing off the hook—a sure sign that spring is on the way. We are now booking sightseeing appointments for a special “Well-Being Tour” that we are offering in April, for groups of about 12 people each. Our guides take each group on a tour of our Biodynamic® gardens, where they see all of the plants that are in bloom, heralding the return spring. They also get a tour of our greenhouses, pictured on the right, where many plants are still waiting to be seeded.

After each tour, everyone comes inside the Customer Center, where we wash each person’s hands and massage them with our Birch Body Scrub for 3 or 4 minutes to enliven and renew the skin after a long harsh winter. When everyone’s hands are clean and dry, we massage a small bit of Almond Facial Oil onto their fingertips, which helps soften cuticles. Then we massage a big dollop of our extremely rich and nutrient-loaded Skin Food into their hands. Then everyone dons a pair of gloves while they sit and watch a film about the history of Weleda and our gardens. By the time the film is over, their hands feel incredibly soft and healthy!

Before the guests leave, we serve a healthy dessert made with low fat cheese, lemon and our Sea Buckthorn Elixir, a juice we sell in Germany that is made from our Biodynamic® sea buckthorn berries.

So why not come and take this Well-Being tour yourself this spring! We would love to have you!
