    Ethical harvesting practices are so important, and not just for herbs. There's only so much to go around. I learned that lesson well when working in Yellowstone and seeing the impact of too many feet in the forest.

  2. Interesting about the UPS, Cheryl. Hey … haven't I seen that acronym somewhere before? 🙂

    Just as some animal species are endangered or disappear over time, I'd never thought about it before, but the same happens to plant species. Nice to see someone is intervening on their behalf.

    Respecting the nature and need of these very special plants is so important given our state of over use and plant cloning and re-engineering. We need to learn from mother mature. We should grow and havest these amazing herbs while not distorying them in the process. Why is it we can’t leave well enough alone.

  4. I think especially when plants have healing properties, it's essential to not let them disappear. What a great organisation. Thanks for the heads up Cheryl.
