    United Plant Savers is thrilled to announce our merger with Sacred Seeds. Sacred Seeds is a global network of sanctuaries preserving biodiversity and plant knowledge through living gardens, containing locally important plants focused on medicinals but including those of ceremonial, food, and craft use. Sacred Seeds formed from the vision of its founding garden at New Chapterís partner farm Finca Luna Nueva in Costa Rica, similar to how United Plant Savers Goldenseal Sanctuary in Ohio became the vision for the Botanical Sanctuary Network.

    OCTOBER 4, 2014 RUTLAND, OH

    The weather was literally 20 degrees warmer with full sun the day before our big event at the Goldenseal Botanical Sanctuary in Rutland, Ohio. We were still in set up mode the evening before as the grumpy cumulus clouds moved in and hoarded the sky vowing cold, hard rain. But all hope was not lost on the incumbent weather, for when the temperature and rain both began to plummet, interspersing promises of sunshine were also breaking through, highlighting the autumnal mosaic like flecks of gold in stone and lifting our sense of hope with arching rainbows across the hollow.

    Non-timber Forest Products Fall 2014 Webinar Series
    Hosted by American Tree Farm System
    Click here for the full ATFS Webinar Calendar

    Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) refers to products other than timber that are harvested from woodlands. NTFPs include plants, parts of plants, fungi, moss, lichen, herbs, vines, shrubs, parts of trees, and other biological material that are either personally used or sold for their commercial value. We eat NTFPs and use them for medicine. We also use them to make decorations and create specialty products. Not only are many NTFPs marketable, they also are critical for healthy woodland ecosystems. Sustainable harvesting and cultivation of NTFPs through forest farming practices can complement overall stewardship of working forests. This webinar series highlights the remarkable and diverse world of non-timber forest products, ranging from an overview of the abundance and diversity of NTFPs to forest farming practices focused on particular marketable products.
