Endangered Native Medicinal Plants
Come join international lecturer, Penelope as she shares her heart’s work with us! As the recipient of the 2021 United Plant Savers Conservation award, she will bring her unique perspective as a Regis-tered Herbalist and Land Steward of Kina Gegoo Botanical Sanctuary to this talk. A significant part of her work, which she will share, is to educate and protect native medicinal plants and their native habitat while helping to ensure 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 spe-cies. This is a real concern for all HERBALISTS!
