Iracambi Medicinal Plants aims to provide owners of forest lands in the Mata Atlântica with an alternative income from their forests, by developing commercially viable products based on indigenous medicinal plants sustainably produced under conservation management practices that enhance the biodiversity of the forest.
In the process, the project expects to re-awaken the concept of forest value through the revitalisation of the plants and practices of traditional medicine. By encouraging interest, both cultural and economic, in the use of indigenous medicinal plants, the project is drawing attention back into the heart of the forest, for it is here that sustainability begins.
