Recuperation of Medicinal Plants in Rural Communities
Project Launch: 10-22-19
The goal of this project, designed and proposed by community organization COAGRO, is to reintroduce medicinal plants into the communities of Pedro Moncayo, Ecuador. This will achieve two community goals. First, they will preserve the culture and use of medicinal plants in the Sierra and second, they will provide an alternate means of income for the women who produce the plants. The women hope to educate people about the benefits of medicinal plants as well as boost the economy in their small, rural communities.
