is abundant, plants are intelligent. Plants are hundreds of
millions of years older than humans. They’ve been on this planet
way longer than mammals. They have so much wisdom within their
cells, within how they grow, where they grow, who they grow
alongside, and then what they can do in the human body. And that
perspective of, all plants have value, all plants have medicinal
value, that perspective is so needed right now as we continue to
spray petrochemicals on healing plants; plants like chickweed,
plants like thistle, plants like dandelion. Plants that I eat most

plants are part of the science of life.” - Cate
- “What’s really healing, I find more than
anything, is humans connecting with plants. Not encapsulated pills.
Or plants that are dried and powdered and put into a capsule, and
that capsule is then put into a plastic bottle, and that plastic
bottle put onto a shelf, with a shelf life.” - Cate
- “Plants are potent, healing allies.” - Amadea
of the problem is we’re over harvesting plants not from our
ecosystem, so we’re not actually connecting with our ecosystem.
We’re not creating potent healing allies. Because when you do, you
care for your ecosystem.” - Cate Stillman
