Code of Ethics

There are certain codes of ethics that all western herbalists and non herbalist should adhere to when working with plants as medicine.  This is by no means a full list.  I try to uphold the code of ethics as much as possible not just to be a good herbalist but as a good steward to the planet and community member of society.  If I have missed something or provided inaccurate information, I employ you to reach out to me.
