We’ve been sharing voices from the forest farming community this spring, and while there are MANY non-timber forest products that can be responsibly harvested for food, fiber, medicine, and art, American Ginseng, or Panax quinquefolius stands out; it is highly sought-after, for its economic and cultural value. In this episode, voices from the field share about the complexities of growing ginseng for conservation and for profit.
