Thoughts on wildcrafting
      Grow the herbs that you want to use. We offer you you seeds, "how-to" booklets and books. Find alternatives to over-harvested or threatened plants. Use what is abundant and locally available. Gather with attention, appreciation and respect. Offer thanks and acknowledge the life connection, we take much from the earth; consider what you can give back.
      What effect will your action have on the plant community? Strive for minimal impact, leave the area at least as wild and as beautiful as you found it. Take only as little as you need. Harvest only the part of the plant that you will use at the most appropriate time of year. Consider taking a few seeds and planting them near your home or in your garden.
      Make SURE you identify the plants that you are taking. Know the endangered and threatened plants in your area and NEVER gather them. Educate yourself about these plants and take steps to protect them. Practice replanting areas. Tend and care for the wild lands as if they were your own gardens.
      Leave plenty of healthy, mature seed producing plants where they can easily reproduce. If unsure harvest no more than 5% of a native plant and 20% of a naturalised plant. Do not harvest the same area over and over. Do not harvest within 50' feet of roads, near mining, agribusiness, etc. Be aware of where fertilisers, pesticides or weed killers have been used.
      Keep a detailed journal of your wildcrafting.
