Medicinal Herb Garden
Located on the campus of the 
University of Washington in 
Seattle, the Medicinal Herb 
Garden is a resource for 
herbalists, medics, and 
botanists of all levels. It is 
not, however, a source of 
medical advice or a guide to 
self-medication.

Proposed Regulations
-Land could have no chemical pesticides applied on it for at least three years before harvest of an organic crop.

-Crop pests, weeds and disease
would be mainly controlled through prevention or through biological methods such as 
wasps that kill harmful insects. 

-Animals could not be given
hormones or antibiotics to stimulate growth. Animals 
would be fed organic feeds.

-Products must contain at least 95 percent organic ingredients to be labeled as 

organic.

It is my belief that the 'Rights 
of Animals', respect for 'Mother Earth',
and eating a 'healthy plant-based diet' 
are all inter-related in helping solve 
the health and environmental problems 
for our planet and for us as individuals. 

I hope this page and the other pages at 
Marcus' Place will help in your search 
for information on these important issues.
