Whether the prize is cordyceps in the Himalayas, ginseng in Great Smoky National Park, or humble stands of ramps in Appalachia, human numbers are now great enough to overwhelm the plants through uncontrolled hunting or destruction of habitat.

High Falls Foundation is dedicated to the cultivation of medicinal plants as a conservation measure. Our goal, however, lies far beyond the industrial agriculture model that reduces the biodiversity of the ecosystem and yields a nutritionally deficient plant. Our interests lie in wild cultivation, food forests, permaculture systems, carbon farming, nature farming, biodynamic methods and all the marvelous re- discoveries of the post-modern world. With nature as the teacher, we follow the path toward restoration of our natural inheritance: abundance for all.
