Whenever there is a demand for any product, there is always that opportunity to make money. Just like the many useful herbs that are increasingly being used for culinary purposes as well as for their medicinal benefits. Some make excellent tea. Many of them are also used in beauty products
And so collecting and growing such useful herbs can be rewarding. Growing them organically will even make them more enticing to the health conscious. One can grow them for personal use only, or for giving them away as special gifts to friends and relatives. Of course, they can also be grown commercially so they can be made available for sale to the general public at a reasonable price. They could be processed into virtually endless products of commerce.
One lady who has been collecting a lot of culinary and medicinal herbs is Mrs. Adela Ang who has a big propagation area in Antipolo City and a showcase at the Manila Seedling Bank compound in Quezon City. She has high-tech facilities for rooting cuttings as well as germinating seeds, using sterilized growing media.
