United Plant Savers is proud to announce our capital campaign for our long awaited Educational & Research Center. With your donation and participation in this walkabout, music and plant love vibe, you will be an integral part of this incredibly important center for plant conservation and medicinal plant preservation.

United Plant Savers announces grant awarded for the market analysis and development of Forest Grown ginseng and Appalachian botanicals to address conservation concerns for sustainable sourcing in the supply chain of wild harvested herbs.

Rutland, Ohio (November, 2016) Founded in 1994, United Plant Savers has been the leading voice in conservation of At-Risk Native Plants, as our mission states to protect native medicinal plants of the United States and Canada and their native habitat while ensuring an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for the future. United Plant Savers is collaborating with American Herbalists Guild, Mountain Rose Herbs, Appalachian Beginning Forest Farming Coalition Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine and the Herbal Academy to distribute a market survey forthcoming in March of 2017. We are at a crossroads and this is a vital time to engage in an important discussion. Along with our survey we will be doing a video series and educational materials on key topics related to the future of forest botanicals and the Forest Grown program. This project will culminate with a three-day symposium in Morgantown West Virginia, July 12-14th, that will feature a research, herbalists and growers tract. We are currently accepting abstracts for the symposium with

Susan Leopold and Alison Ormsby from United Plant Savers/Sacred Seeds attended the 2016 International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Conservation Congress in September in Honolulu, Hawaii. The World Conservation Congress is only held every four years. This year’s gathering brought 9,000 people from around the world together to discuss conservation successes and challenges, and set goals for the future.

Dear Friends and Members of United Plant Savers, The time has come to collect new articles for our annual Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation, to be published in Spring 2018. We invite all of our members and supporters to tell their stories and share their knowledge and experiences in this upcoming issue. If you have participated in research or have stories or news of interest about “At-Risk” or native medicinal plants, please share with our membership.

The theme for the Spring 2018 Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservationis consciousness in herbalism.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY TO SPREAD CONSCIOUSNESS FOR PLANT CONSERVATION? This year we have seen goldenseal listed on the IUCN redlist, the Young Living case with the illegal logging of rosewood, how do we bring consciousnes into herbalism. How do we heal our selves and the planet?  How can herbalism inspire stewardship instead of resource extraction of our precious at-risk medicinal plants? We welcome your submission and we do have a selective process so not all submission will be published but we will try and share them through emails and social media when possible.

Submission Deadline: January 10, 2018
