The Sustainable Herbs Project

We talk about clean, sustainable food but what about clean, sustainable medicine?

The Sustainable Herbs Project

Ann Armbrecht is raising funds for The Sustainable Herbs Project on Kickstarter! We talk about clean, sustainable food but what about clean, sustainable medicine?

The Sustainable Herbs Project is a new project by the producers of the award winning documentary, Numen: the Nature of Plants, the first feature length film on the healing power of plants. We are creating an interactive documentary following medicinal plants through the supply chain to provide you with the information needed to feel more confident about the herbal remedies you purchase. With stories, videos, and facts, we’ll bring the supply chain to life with interviews with men and women involved in all aspects of the industry.

Our vision is to use this site to launch a more educated and responsible consumer movement supporting high quality herbal remedies and sustainable and ethical sourcing. We want this interactive multi-media website to be available for free and so we have launched this Kickstarter Campaign to cover our costs up front. Proceeds will go to the design and development of the website/interactive documentary and to birthing an organization to carry on this work.
