Vollmer Botanical Sanctuary

Pin It

Thornton, New Hampshire
Sanctuary Stewards: Joann, Emmy, Hannah and Rick Vollmer

Our twenty-acre wilderness forest land in Thornton, New Hampshire, bordering the White Mountain National Forest is mountainous land consisting of areas of both mixed hardwood and evergreen and is home to black bear, deer and moose. Plants already growing here include: sarsaparilla, goldthread, partridgeberry, pipsissewa, lady’s slipper, yellow violets and trillium.

In October 6, 2001, we invited a few members of the community to join us in our first planting of native at-risk medicinals. Together we planted about 300 Goldenseal, American Ginsing, Black Cohosh, and Bloodroot. We will continue planting more of these and other at-risk medicinals each year that will provide a sanctuary for plant rescues. In order to share this experience and teaching with the community we offer herb classes at our home and at our business, Wise Way Wellness Center, where we cultivate many other medicinal plants.
