I commit to becoming a more conscious herbal products consumer by pledging to:
Build and Deepen My Relationship with Forest Botanicals
- What medicinal plants do I use that are wild harvested from Appalachian forests?
- What do I already know/what to learn about these plants, where they are harvested, and the
- people harvesting them?
- How can I deepen my relationship with forest botanicals and the ecosystems where they are
- How can I deepen my relationship with the communities who grow and harvest forest
- What can I find out about the challenges and issues involved in sustainably sourcing these
