The Yerba Mansa Project
In 2014, Dara established the Yerba Mansa Project, a community-driven volunteer effort to help restore native medicinal plants along the banks of the Rio Grande and provide related educational programming.
The project has developed over the years into a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a small staff, a crew of field volunteers, and a long-term vision for reinvigorating our biological and cultural legacy by providing a pathway for people to care for the land and plants that have long sustained us.
