In my young days I saw, that herb-woman cure hand of my grandpa during one week, otherwise amputate of the hand threatened. When I was older, my mother ordered me that I have to make a list and pictures of all medicinal plants. Up to the present day I am thankful her for it", he said. He all the time search the herb, which was helpful to his grandpa. On the local meadows it grows, but isn't in any atlas. "Up to now all medicinal plants and their characteristics aren't fully explored, "he said. Working with herbs, as he fills in, is very exacting work. Firstly we have to obtain needed seeds, properly take care of soil, hoe the plants, removing of weed, correctly collect them, sparingly to dry and for preparing final product we need good herb formulas. "We didn't use all of them, but we are preparing new ones also", we know it. Company from Plavnica co-operates with front experts from Slovakia, Czech Republic and Ukraine also.

In the first half of the July we have in front of us orange meadow. Pot marigold is just harvesting. "It is a universal herb, has excellent healing qualities and it is effecting as antibiotic, "Mr Bobuľský explains. "We are hand-picking from pot marigold blossom only. During summer we are on the field and out of season we are working in packing room", one of the harvesters - Anna Knapíková is speaking. Magnificent medicinal herb Malva neglecta (Common mallow) is with purple blossom, full of bees, growing beside loftily up to man height. "They don't bite", Michaela and Petra Štupáková are laughing, students, who during summer season earn a little extra money on the field. "We don't use chemical matters. During seeding we diversify crops, wherewith we are increasing soil fertility and limiting occurrence of plant pests", continues our guide. A bit beside common agrimony is growing, it has healing anti-inflammatory and diuretic effect, and we smell to chirping relaxing antiseptic spear-mint and soothing antibacterial lemon balm and also next herbs. "There up it is untouched by civilization", Mr. Bobuľský shows towards Levočské vrchy Mts. There wild growing plants and forest fruits are harvesting.
