Thank You to Those Events That Support UpS!

Our recent Planting the Future conferences were a huge success! To read more about these Oregon and Ohio events CLICK HERE.


Every little bit helps a small organization like United Plant Savers, and conferences that raise contributions to support UpS, a unique non-profit dedicated to the conservation of the plants, are a win for all involved. Herb Pharm has been a wonderful host to many of UpS’s Planting the Future events, and this year's event raised nearly 15,000 dollars for UpS. Rosemary Gladstar has used her herbal gatherings as a strong voice for UpS. The International Herb Symposium and the Women’s New England gathering provide critical support, both financially and spiritually to the day to day efforts of UpS. This model was important to Rosemary’s former student Emily Ruff in planning the first Florida Herbal gathering event that raised over $1,000 for UpS. UpS would like to thank Emily for our organization, and we would like to encourage other herbal gatherings to consider ways to engage with us (http://www.holisticlivingschool.org/).

UpS would also like to take a moment and thank a very special new member, Steph Zabel who has a wonderful business, www.flowerfolkherbs.com in Cambridge, MA. Steph helped organize www.herbstalk.org, an event featuring local herbalists in her area, and they raised $400 for UpS through a raffle. Thanks to Steph and the Herb Stalk folks.


The Terra Vita Herbal Gathering in Ashland, Oregon has committed to give 5% profits to UpS for their August event. Traditions in Western Herbalism had made UpS a co-sponsor to help align the mission of folk herbalism and conservation. The Southeast Women’s Conference has also made UpS one of their sponsors. Herbal events are a great way for UpS to reach out to new members and support the grassroots efforts of herbal medicine and the conservation of healing herbs.
