Sustainable Herbs Program - Declaration of Dependence

"The wisdom of the words and the beauty of the plants and pollinators give me hope."

As the late Dr. Bill Mitchell says in this video, “We need a new era. I would call it a declaration of dependence… dependence on ourselves and mother earth herself…. This declaration of dependence would find us re-dedicating ourselves to a much healthier way of living with each other and with the earth.”
