Host Lisa Morrison interviews local Holistic Nurse Practitioner, Susan Clearwater. Her 50-acre Green Turtle Botanical Sanctuary in Martinsville is blessed with some of the best soil in the county and an abundance of native medicinal plants. Clearwater combines her nursing education with holistic and traditional herbal medical perspectives to offer a comprehensive blend of healing therapies. She also offers nutritional counseling and traditional herbs in addition to the salves and tinctures she creates from her sanctuary. Green Turtle also does service learning/outreach projects through an apprenticeship program, training local residents to grow medicinal herbs from seeds, cuttings and transplants, and cultivate the plants through the growing season. Green Turtle Botanical Sanctuary is a member of United Plant Savers, a national non-profit working to protect native medicinal plants of the United States and Canada and their native habitat while ensuring an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for generations to come.
