Partners for Change!

At Mountain Rose Herbs, we plant seeds. We like to see them grow, so we water and nurture them. We talk to them and give them lots of love. This is the same philosophy we use to support our non-profit partners. Check out two new organizations that Mountain Rose Herbs will encourage to bud, bloom, and flourish!

Walama Restoration Project

The Walama Restoration Project is a grassroots non-profit organization that serves the community by protecting and enhancing riparian areas, forests, and grassland ecosystems. They are a savvy organization that couples education with action as they work to raise awareness and inspire change within the community. Mountain Rose Herbs supports this group through annual financial contributions and by helping to disseminate literature. In addition, we partner with WRP for employee-led volunteer days through the Mountain Rose River Project.





Western Environmental Law Center

This public interest law firm has a list of accomplishments as high as the mighty Sequoia trees grow and as impressive as the rushing western waters home to our beloved salmon. They use the power of law to defend and protect majestic landscapes, iconic wildlife, and rural farming communities. Mountain Rose Herbs supports WELC with an annual financial contribution. This year, WELC celebrates 20 years of defending the West and we couldn’t be more proud to be involved!
