We believe that we all should learn to live with the desert without harming its delicate balance and to understand its needs and nature to better serve its preservation. The plants of the desert served the Indian in so many ways, medically, physically, and spiritually. We feel that we can learn to use these plants as they were intended without harming the plants or the environment they live in. The desert is a wondrous gift for all to enjoy, appreciate, and protect.
