How Did ECfES Begin?
We are a crowd-sourced, grass-roots community endeavor. Simply put we seek to fill the following gaps in the ethnobotanically-oriented community.
1) An informational gap (in the form of a centralized physical library collection)
2) An experiential gap (in the form of a physical meeting space in perpetuity)
Our project had its roots in the attempt of Eugene community members to donate their books. Current libraries in operation in the area were willing to accept our books, but declined to keep the collection intact. In other words, they would take our books and scatter the collection far and wide between different institutions.
We envision not only keeping the book collection intact, but expertly curating the collection in addition to tripling or quadrupling the library collection and registering as a State Library Association and Non-Profit Organization.
The Eugene Center for Ethnobotanical Studies does not endorse illegal or dangerous behavior. The Center does not endorse breaking the law. However, we do urge those interested to continue educating themselves.
