Many high-value medicinal plants grow in forests. Examples include American ginseng (Panax quinquefolium), goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) (roots pictured), and black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa). The Forest Farming community can share information on the cultivation, marketing, and sale of these valuable non-timber forest products.
This is where you can find research-based information from America's land-grant universities enabled by eXtension.org
More Forest Farming information will be coming soon, but in the meantime we are available to field your questions. Please ask us questions or visit our growing FAQ area:
