Nova Scotia Plant Savers Mission

The Nova Scotia Plant Savers Mission is to protect native medicinal plants of the United States and Canada and their native habitat while ensuring an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for generations to come. We encourage land stewardship and sustainable wildharvesting, recognizing that the environmentally responsible cultivation of medicinal plants is of critical importance in addressing these goals.

The first and founding meeting of
Nova Scotia Plant Savers

took place in the Wolfville area on November 28, 1998. We are the first Chapter to form in Canada and hopefully will inspire other bioregions to form their own chapters. A well attended meeting of just over thirty people from diverse interests in plants gathered to be informed as well as to watch a very wonderful slide show of "At Risk " and "To Watch" plants.
