“We have a finite environment—the planet. Anyone who thinks that you can have infinite growth in a finite environment is either a madman or an economist.” – David Attenborough
In the quiet countryside outside of Napanee, Ontario is a cute, natural, little greenhouse called Herb Haven. The small Mom and Pop (owned by Brad and Michele) is a business that focuses on natural herbs. Brad and Michele both grew up in small country towns, with Brad being raised on a farm. They are firm advocates of natural and holistic remedies, so with their passion for the holistic lifestyle, sustainability and eco-friendliness, they opened Herb Haven for the production for and education of their community.
