LUCKY & ESSENTIAL:

Clover of one species or another grows in a variety of ecosystems on every continent except Antarctica. We worked with white clover, because in the Mid-Atlantic region of North America, that’s what we have the most access to. However, regardless of the species, clover plays an extremely important role in the health of the soil, the health of bees and other livestock, and therefore ultimately in our health.
