UNITED PLANT SAVERS ~ ACTIVELY PLANTING THE FUTURE
Many of our members are interested in growing medicinal plants, both individually and commercially with the focus on restoring those on the UpS “At-Risk” and “To-Watch” lists. Since 1996 we have been compiling names of individuals, nurseries and farms that supply these plants. Our intention is to not only provide members with resources of where to obtain these plants, but to make the ethical business of medicinal plant propagation more profitable than the practice of wild collection of “At-Risk” plants. Generally the wild collection of seed for resale purposes is considered ethical as long as the regenerative potential of wild plant colonies is not jeopardized. The resources listed in this catalogue have been contacted directly by UpS and have filled out a statement form that states they are selling nursery-propagated stock. When ordering seeds/plants/herbs from any of these companies, let them know that you saw their listing in the UpS Nursery and Bulk Herb Directory.
This is an ongoing project and we continually update the Directory. If you know of other resources that should be included or individuals you think we should contact, please let us know. Send information on nurseries, farmers and growers directly to UpS Nursery and Bulk Herb Directory, P.O. Box 400, East Barre, VT 05649.
