Ginseng & Goldenseal
with Robert Eidus
Sunday, April 13, 2014
1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Cost: $60

Come join us to explore goldenseal and ginseng in a forest environment as the plants come up this spring. We will explore a rich Appalachian hardwood cove where these plants live and see "baby" ginseng. The class will be spent with hands-on training with the newly sprouted plants. The cultivation of native medicinal plants as a new business opportunity will be mentioned. New marketing strategies and marketing organizations will be highlighted. Current events and programs will be shared.

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 produced a 27-minute video entitled "How to Grow Goldenseal," which is available for purchase.
