Just a quick Sunday check in. It’s been a bumbling, busy week! I was delighted to give a talk at the Victorian Herbalist’s meeting on where our herbs come from and concerns for the future...a distillation of the last seven years of my journey with naturopathy and my reservations about the industry. It was wonderful to see a lot of interest in medicine making and concern over the widespread commercialisation of herbal medicine. A lot of work to be done, but luckily the herbs make it oh so enjoyable to do!
I also would like to share this contribution to this month’s ‘The Planthunter’ edition. It’s a fantastic online magazine, edited by the very clever Georgina Reid...makes for very thought provoking reading throughout the working week. This month’s theme is sex. So how could I resist not writing about some very amorous and charismatic plants? A honeyed elixir. Oh so very delicious.
