Where are your roots? Have you ever been transplanted? Or come home to your birth soil, which seems familiar and therefore safter. Tonight we will be talking to a fabulous, interesting guy who has a second career as a shaman, a true Plant Whisperer, and a really funny, real-life true hippy: Aldous Burbank.
From Aldous’s website:
Declaration of Ethnobotanical Rights Understanding that plants have historically been a source for food, fiber, fuel, and medicine, and that the human family has been traditionally sustained through its relationship to the botanical world, it is hereby declared that:
- All plants species are naturally created equal, each bearing its own unique qualities and inherent value.
- All people have an inalienable right to cultivate, utilize, study, and share information regarding any species of plant. As this Sacred Trust lies beyond the natural jurisdiction of any human agency, this natural relationship shall not be infringed providing that it does not actively endanger native ecological communities or public welfare.
- No individual person should be prohibited from the cultivation of any plant species for medicinal, spiritual, aesthetic, or other personal, non-mercantile purposes.
- While reasonable governmental taxes may be levied on the sale of agricultural products, no person or organization should be impeded in the commercial adaptation and trade of any plant, or plant product, providing such commercial activities do not violate civil or criminal statutes or other public safety codes regulating the commerce or transfer of specific plant materials, and are not contaminating of the genetic qualities and well-being of other species or ecological communities. 🚀
