Ginseng Growing and Ethical Harvesting Resources
Ginseng is a woodland herb whose survival is threatened by habitat
destruction and careless harvesting. Responsible harvest and growing of
Ginseng is possible and neccesary. Learning more about Ginseng and sharing with others can have a positive impact. Fortunately with the growth of the Internet, people in the remote areas where Ginseng is most prevalent are able to share their vast knowledge about good stewardship and cultivation of wildgrown Ginseng.
I have decided not to provide Ginseng buyer information for roots by the pound. If you have a root that you think is something special, and it was ethically harvested, give me a holler. I've never sold what I dig, I don't know who pays the most for Ginseng by the pound, or what they pay and that changes faster than I can keep up. But I do have a market if you have something extra special. Email Karen@altnature.com
This year has opened my eyes about how much ginseng is harvested illegally and with no regard to plant conservation, and other factors contributing to its demise, especially deer.
Forest Farming is one of the ways to help boost Ginseng populations. I am very thankful to those who have enlightened me with information about growing Ginseng, correct harvesting and keeping it for the future and would love to have a class to share knowledge with others.

Emerald Castle Farms is a great site to learn about
Ginseng from Dr. Brad Castle.
The Articles section is full of great Ginseng information.
He also sells Ginseng Seed and Roots for transplanting.

Tennessee Ginseng NewsTN Ginseng Growers Met Friday At MTSU
(Middle Tennessee State University 5/18/2018. More meetings to come)
Who will speak for the
The gentle flowers cloistered
in quiet meadow and lonely wood
Plants whose power is in their softness
Or in their strange difference?
Grandfather Ginseng will take the stand!
In the country and the town, the reputation of this
gentleman is known to all. Bold, vigorous,
crafty and tough, he's older than the mountains but
he feels just like a newborn child.
Special thanks to Lee Murray for his inspiration, knowledge, and
for adding a creative touch to this section with his Grandfather Ginseng Tales.
