“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead
United Plant Savers’ mission is to protect native medicinal plants, fungi, and their habitats while ensuring renewable populations for use by generations to come.
Through our work we aim to ensure that species are readily available, harvested, and cultivated through practices that protect native plants, fungi, and their habitats in a manner that embodies the principles of reciprocity, right livelihood, and biocultural diversity.
The work of United Plant Savers involves research, education, and conservation of native medicinal plants and their habitats. We hope that you will join us in this worthwhile and important mission. UpS is a 501 (C)3 non-profit organization.
