"Perhaps the most radical thing you can do in our time is to start turning over the soil, loosening it up for the crops to settle in, and then stay home and tend them."
- Rebecca Solnit

1/8/2010--  Restorative Medicine (previously known as WTS Med - www.restorativemedicine.com) is looking for growers that our company can source organic, high quality dried bulk herbs from, on a yearly basis. Currently we are reaching out to farms across the United States to transition our supply of plant material to domestically grown. We wish to support our local farms in the Northeast as much as possible. Several of the herbs we use could be grown here but are imported mainly from Europe and Asia right now. Dandelion, for heaven's sake!
This is a starter list of Northeastern thriving herbs we need in 2010. The amounts range from 20-200#, dried, annually:
Lily of the Valley root~ Convallaria majalis, Pulsatilla root and/or herb~ Pulsatilla vulgaris, Eleutherococcus senticoccus root, Iris Versicolor  (or spp.) rhizome, Gingko Biloba leaves,Rosehip fruit ~ Rosa canina, laevigata, St Johns Wort ~ Hyperium perforatum flowering tops, Alfalfa leaf ~ Medicago sativa, Astragalus membranaceous root, Black Cohosh root~ Cimicifuga Racemosa, Hawthorn Berry ~ Cratageus oxycantha, Blue Vervain herb~ Verbena hostata, Boneset leaf~ Eupatorium perfoliatum, Dandelion Root ~ Taraxacum officinale

Information I will need from you as a farm source:
 Contact name and business name, Address and phone number, Total acreage of the Farm, # years in business, Organic Certified?, # of years growing this herb, if none, list other herbs grown, current yield of herbs (dried), do you have a professional drying facility? If not, where will you dry herbs?, Date herbs will be available, wholesale price per pound  (refer to Mountain Rose herbs and other growers online)
If you can commit to growing for us in the near future (but not this year) also let me know, WITH THE SPECIFICS OF THE ABOVE INFORMATION so we can keep you on file.

We hope you will consider integrating medicinal plants into your vegetable fields or expand your current herb crop selection, it is a rapidly expanding market. The herbal agriculture network is on the brink of exciting opportunities this next decade.

If you are interested in growing for us contact me as soon as possible, and again please be prepared to answer the above listed grower info questions for my records. I’ll do what I can to answer your questions and possibly refer you to seed/stock etc. resources if you are not already a qualified (3-5 years +) herb farm.
