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.

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
