"New United Plant Savers Center Seeks to Conserve Medicinal Plants of Appalachia"
www.herbalgram.org | 2017 | Issue 116
Construction of the organization’s new Center for Medicinal Plant Conservation will begin soon. The center, which will be about 1,600 square feet and open to the public, will sit at the entrance of the 379-acre UpS Sanctuary in Rutland, Ohio.
The building will serve as a visitor center, and UpS hopes that it will help attract more visitors to, and ensure the long-term preservation and financial sustainability of, the sanctuary, which is home to many medicinal plant species native to Appalachia.
“[This] will be the first public space in the United States to recognize the historical, cultural, and economic significance of native, and in many cases endemic, Appalachian medicinal plants,” wrote Sara Katz, UpS’ board of directors
