Chris with Moroccan Rosemary

The over harvesting of wild plant species threatens as many as 10,000 medicinal species. But this is not the case with rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), which grows profusely throughout the Atlas mountain range of Morocco. The commercial harvesting of rosemary does not harm the plant, and provides income for nomadic Berber people who live in the mountains for months at a time to cut rosemary for trade.
