    Thank you for doing all of this.

  2. How I wish I’d seen this program announcement earlier! I hope the event was a huge success; what a worthwhile and meaningful endeavor. If you have a mailing list, please do add me to it. My son/business partner and I have as one of our main goals to incorporate as many Michigan resources as possible into our projects and help foster respect and appreciation for this state and its people. While all of our films in development are fiction, they include a realistic view of some of the many and diverse issues that affect all of us living beside these beautiful Great Lakes. The wild (natural) plants and herbs that abound here have always fascinated me, right from youngest childhood to this day; I have always believed that the first people had in their care a very great treasure of knowledge long lost to many Europeans. I am purely self-taught via old books and listening to much older folks; armed with that shared knowledge, was once able to cure my horse of a skin disorder that failed to respond to the vet’s prescription medication. The very best of wishes for success in your plant preservation and restoration projects.
