Experience in the area

I have been growing herbs organically for 27 years. I have also written and self-published, loose leaf binder, "Herbmans Journal". 2008 is my last year at Smile Herb Shop. I plan to grow herbs in my small back yard and sell at David's Natural Store in Columbia, Md. on saturdays. I also will return to the Baltimore Herb Festival in May 2009(memorial day weekend).I used the word organically grown, but the state came into the picture and stated that I could not use the word unless I become certified & paid a $300.00 fee. I decided to add to my name (99% chemical-free) since nothing on this planet is 100%, except Jesus Christ, taxes & death. My customers were satisfied with this instead of paying a large fee and raising my prices,with no guarantee that it is organic except for a label.Their belief was in my word.

What do you like about this subject?

I like this subject because I could not believe that God gave us all this to grow for our health. The hardest part is obtaining the correct info on how to use them.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Educate young and old about growing and usng herbs for fun and health. Keep chasing for more info from customers around the world on how they use the herbs.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Toothache plant good for mouth problems, mouth sores, baby teething, pain of teeth braces.1 leaf of the toothache plant & 1 leaf of stevia plant, chewed together taste like toothpaste. Don't know the brand.I will be growing "huacatay" this year and have a limited supply of fresh seeds. Contact me for cost.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

yerba bruja, leaf of life, wonder of the world Keeps evil away from you and your home. Woman have use it to attract men.1 drop of oil from the leaf is used to heal the ear. Warm the leaf and apply to rash or poison ivy.Negative energy will keep it from growing.
