We really need more donations to enable us to keep going – to maintain and further develop our free-to-use database of over 8000 edible and useful plants. We need at least £1000 (or $1300/ €1200) every month and recently donations are running at less than half that. If you value what we do please give what you can to support our work. More >>>
