A beautiful biodynamic herb farm created by Deb Soule in Rockport, Maine is running a kickstarter to buy the equipment they need to meet the ongoing FDA requirements. I apprenticed with Deb 27 years ago and she taught me about wild foraging, growing and preparing herbal medicinals. The FDA requires small herb farms to abide by the same 800 page book of requirements that large pharmaceutical companies have to comply with. It's nearly impossible!!

Please support these good guys!

Also, I'm inviting Deb to answer questions on this thread... Please post questions!
