When I hired the folks to host our site I found myself sitting down to write out a mission statement. Though they were friends of the family, I felt like I needed them to FEEL what the heart of this project is before they started to work on it.
Here is what came out:
The Poppy Swap
The purpose of this site is to provide a service. We bring great herbal products to the public and create prosperity for cottage-industry herbalists.
We facilitate positive community development, personal, environmental and health education. We promote the cultural development of green market places.
The site provides an affordable and flexible website for herbalists, wildcrafters, gardeners, farmers and sustainable wholesalers.
We attract people interested in the best of holistic medicinals, herbal edibles, bodycare and cosmetics, aromatherapy, bulk herbs, pet care products, and wholesale supplies.
We promote organic and sustainable products and will only list products that are made with natural ingredients or wildcrafted in a sustainable manner.
So that’s the broad stroke on our baby site, let’s start-up the swap!
