http://www.stevia-plant.com/ Our Stevia plants are grown from cuttings not from seed. Our stock is from the research project the Canadian government ran for many years. Our Stevia plants can not be considered "certified organic" because we use a chemical fertilizer on them. Indoors during the winter white fly is a problem and we do spray with "Pyreth-It". This pesticide is made from the Pyrethrum Daisy and is approved for use on organic crops. We use Pyreth-It only as needed, as our first line of defense is Lady Bugs and other beneficials. At no time would I ever stop one of my grand kids eating a leaf from the Stevia plants. Of course they have been tough to watch out for Lady Bugs and not eat them.


http://thenurturedway.com/ The Nurtured Way is a doula practice based in Philadelphia, PA. It was born out of a desire to serve women and families throughout the childbearing year through prenatal, birth, postpartum, and breastfeeding support. On the website you can find information about pregnancy, birth, doulas, the "Wise Woman Tradition," and about my pregnancy, labor, and postpartum services. There is also an extensive resource listing and an ever growing library, collection of articles, and documents available for download. It is my wish that all families have access to the support that they need to feel truly nurtured during this special time.

It provides a rich resource for Gaian ritual and an Earth-based pathway to wisdom within.
