A Ginseng Hunt

Calendar – NC Ginseng & Goldenseal CompanyThe Southern Appalachian School for Growing Medicinal Plants Presents: A Ginseng Hunt.

This three hour class with Robert Eidus includes a ginseng hunt in the forest. Eagle Feather Organic Farm in Marshall, NC.

Come join us to see Goldenseal and Ginseng in a forest environment as the plants go down for the fall. We will explore a rich Appalachian cove where these plants live and then hunt the ginseng berries. The berries will be eaten for their medicinal benefits and the seeds will be placed in a stratification box for a year. The cultivation of native medicinal plants as a new business opportunity will be mentioned. New marketing strategies and organizations will be highlighted.

Robert is Land Steward of Eagle Feather Organic Farm, owner of the North Carolina Ginseng and Goldenseal Company and has written two booklets on growing programs for ginseng and goldenseal in a chemical free environment. He has also recently produced a video entitled Growing Goldenseal, which is now available.
