Sabzeh, Symbol of Livelihood

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - 10:52

As a symbol of livelihood, Iranians grow Sabzeh, wheat, barley, mung bean or lentil sprouts in a dish, as one of the seven symbolic items traditionally displayed at the Iranian celebration of the New Year, Nowruz.

The environmentalist Mitra Alborzimanesh stated that growing sabzeh does not have any contradiction with environment, ISNA reports. “Growing sabzeh is considered as an environmental activity.’

As she explained, these seeds do not grow in all climates and besides Sizdah Be-dar is not an appropriate time for planting saplings. She praised the idea of throwing sabzeh into water saying that it grows in the water and is a good food for birds and fish.

“Growing sabzeh is an educational project for our kids to know and care more about nature. High amount of stale bread is discarded in our country and we can save our grains by managing our waste,” she explained.

Recently Tehran Mayor Mohammad Ali Najafi has called on Tehrani citizens to plant a tree while they are growing sabzeh for their Haft Seen.

He said that Tehraners who don’t have yard to transplant the tree can transfer their plant to 12 hectare greenbelt, which was established by the Tehran Municipality and will be inaugurated in coming days.
