Sacred Seed Sanctuary, Costa Rica

During their stay, Tara and Christina toured the Sacred Seeds Sanctuary, Luna Nueva' s dynamic collection of over 300 tropical medicinal plants. This sanctuary protects and celebrates not only biological diversity in Costa Rica and the tropics, but also the diversity of cultural knowledge related to these plants worldwide. In a world where 50 to 200 species become extinct every day due to deforestation, over harvesting, or other human activity, the sanctuary aims to preserve the genetic material and cultural use of these plants.
