Hi Shundra,

We have oh so many of them. I have requested some detailed information for you from the RADA office- that should include the scientific names et al. As soon as I get it I will forward it on to you personally.

Many of them, by the way are medicinal.

You will learn of weeds such as


  • Wild Ginger
  • Red Bush
  • Behamia Grass
    It grows in clusters
  • Cerassie
  • bitter bush
  • Spanish Needle
    Good for fever and stomach aches. Also used to feed rabbits
  • Ganja (Marijuana)
  • Dandelion
  • King of the forest
  • Comfey
  • Black Sage
  • Periwinkle
    Good for diabetes
  • ...and lots more!
