We are supporting a community based medicinal herb conservation scheme in Tibet.

Overharvesting and habitat pressures are leading to a loss of flora.

Our work is to provide more seeds of selected species so that they can be distributed to other growers via a small nursery.

It is sponsored by ROPKA a charity, the name means "help".

We have a donation pot in the garden, also online via the Herb Nursery if you wish.
