We are ...of the jungle
We are not a big business, simply a devoted family team of plant lovers and researchers dedicated to preservation and propagation.
Bringing these things together has been part of many years travel along rain-
forest paths and garden paths, down archive corridors and nueral corridors.
As always, the plants remain the real teachers. They are heuristic by nature,
enabling seekers of truth to find their own answers. Growing a plant can be a
profound spiritual exchange. There is a complete encyclopedia of teachings
being shown to us in the life-form symptoms we call a species.
An increasingly compelling sense of significance is growing around tropical
plantlife as the wildly accelerating pace of rainforest devastation at the hand
of puny humans continues. The extinction spectre seems to be stimulating a
calling-out by the more sentinent plant species toward influence in the lives
of humans. It is this spirit we serve this collection to you. Listen well for
such callings, time is short. The song of the jungle is sometimes a scream...
This catalog represents part of our commitment to Direct Action in these urgent
times. Those who have been involved with us over the years will know of the
fruitful botanical projects sponsered by ...of the jungle. We thank everyone
who has supported our efforts with their orders and encouragement.
