The launch became a spectacular presentation of Pax Herbals as an Integral Enterprise - illustrating masterfully all integral dimensions. Five skilled teams of Pax Herbals introduced creatively and artfully the ecological, cultural, educational-technological, economic and spiritual dimension of Pax Herbals, making it a potent educational and practice showcase for Africa and the world.

After the launch a number of prominent voices sent feedback on this memorable event. Here are few of these comments, capturing the essence of the launch of Pax Herbals becoming a Home for Humanity:

The launches of the various homes for humanity (H4H) that I have been privileged to witness have shattered my understanding of home. They have liberated the concept from the visible structural confines and comforts we usually associate with the word home. Each time a new H4H is presented to us, I am reminded that word human comes from the Latin “humus” meaning earth or ground, the final abode of all of us common mortals. I am also reminded and that in gardening it refers to the components of the soil that are rich in organic matter. I now also understand why “unity” is embedded in the word “humanity”. It refers to the symbiosis between humans and nature, between humans and all living systems, including plants. The story of Pax Herbals reminds us that plants are not mere crops to be harvested for medicinal purposes but as co-creators of the sustainable planet we all desperately need.
