At Risk Medicinal Plant Sanctuary ~ Giving Back – Its Good for the Soul

At Risk Medicinal Plant Sanctuary ~ Giving Back – Its Good for the Soul

20 minutes  

The Ginkgo Tree is proud to be a Botanical Sanctuary Member with United Plant Savers.  UPS’ mission is to protect native medicinal plants of North America and their native habitat while ensuring an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for generations to come.  With herbs moving into mainstream, and the demand on wild medicinal plants increases we are using up the supply of these herbs.  This increased usage along with habitat destruction is causing an ever-increasing shortage of wild plant resources, including some of our most treasured medicinal species.  Join us to learn about United Plant Savers, At Risk and At Watch medicinal plants and their medicinal uses.  Learn how you too, can make a difference!

Students will become aware of our at risk and at watch medicinal plants in North America, learn what plants not to wild craft and will learn what they can do to help by giving back. They will also learn how they too could become a sanctuary.
