Green witchcraft is a version of modern Wiccan and other traditions sharing an emphasis on nature and the natural world. They celebrated earth deities such as Gaia. Some members are hereditary witches with ancestors having been ancient or medieval Pagan herbalists, wise women, and midwives while others treat the figures as role models but claim to be no descendents. With the current interest in ecology green witchcraft plays an important role. A.G.H.
