United Plant Savers is very pleased to welcome two new members to our Board of Directors, Todd Lynch of Ecotropy LLC and Melanie Carpenter of Zack Woods Herb Farm.


Todd Lynch is the principal of Ecotropy LLC, a design studio that integrates medicinal plants, ecology and art to create outdoor healing spaces in order to strengthen and illustrate the connections shared by human and ecological health, and to empower people to take a more active part in their surroundings and their own well-being. Todd has collaborated on health and landscape restoration projects across the US and Canada, has won several design competitions and grants for environmental art installations and is trained in landscape architecture, health care garden design and community herbalism. He blogs about landscape, wellness and medicinal plants on his website, www.ecotropy.net, and his Twitter feed @ecotropy.



Melanie Carpenter, is the co-founder and co-owner of Zack Woods Herb Farm-a 10 acre organic medicinal herb farm in central Vermont. Melanie grew up at Sage Mountain. It was there with Rosemary Gladstar that Melanie started her first business, Sage Mountain Herb Products. Over the last 25 years she has continued her work as a medicinal herb farmer, mother, educator, and community healer. After serving as teacher and principal in the public school for the last 15 years, Melanie now applies her background in education, administration and farming to develop and lead workshops on medicinal herbs and their production. With her husband Jeff Carpenter, Melanie is co-authoring The Organic Medicinal Herb Farm to be published by Chelsea Green Publishers in the spring of 2015.
