There are innumerable venerable plant species with priceless medicinal gifts to share, of which we don’t currently have stock. Another way to support the garden is to gift us plants or seeds of species from our wishlist! Please DON’T have plants shipped to us without warning! Rather, be in touch with us at greenfarmacygarden@gmail.com if you’d like to ship or deliver a gift for our collection.

In addition to these specific species, we fervently hope to increase our stock of species from herbal traditions that haven’t yet been well-represented here, including African, Polynesian, and South Asian traditions. Please reach out with offers or questions!

The Dukes’ extensive ethnobotanical and ecological library, housed for decades in The Green Farmacy Garden lounge, was largely passed on to Maryland University of Integrative Health and United Plant Savers in 2022, according to the Dukes’ estate plans. While a small and diverse subset remain here for visitors to explore, we’d love to restore some of the breadth and depth of the original collection, including books on global medicinal plants and herbal traditions. Here are some specific titles, but most books you might like to donate in this realm would be welcomed!
