As the field of Herbal Medicine is growing and expanding, concerns regarding ethics of sourcing our plants is imperative for continued survival of our medicinal plants. Discussions will consist of at-risk plants from the United Plant Savers list and social movements towards sustainable transparent sourcing. Specific plants will be discussed such as Ulmus rubra (Slippery elm), Hydrastis canadensis (Goldenseal), Echinacea spp. (Purple Coneflower), Cimicifuga racemosa (Black Cohosh), Ligusticum porteri (Osha), and Dioscorea villosa (Wild Yam).
