Welcome to 100 Days of Ginseng: Stewardship Countdown 2022
Thank you to all who helped make 2020 a year of education and stewardship!
Please feel free to follow along with the past countdowns on Instagram, read through
the resources on this website, and share with those who might be interested in wild
I look forward to bringing this back next year, but in the mean time, please visit
WildAmericanGinseng.org to learn more about American ginseng biology,
threats, stewardship and conservation!
Long live American ginseng,
Though ginseng season starts on September 1st, in most states,
there are many ways to have an impact all year.
Please share and help to plant the seeds of ginseng education and stewardship!
Ginseng is an amazing plant, and there is always more to learn! Check out these resources and books about ginseng biology, history, culture and cultivation.
If you interact with ginseng plants, learn more about becoming a good steward and plant every seed!
If you dig ginseng, learn about the local laws and how to minimize the impact of your harvest by using the principles of good stewardship and ethical harvest.
If you don't interact with ginseng, you can still help by supporting businesses who sustainably source slow growing, at-risk botanicals like ginseng, goldenseal, black cohosh and blue cohosh.
You can also support groups who educate folks about stewardship, promote ethical harvest and support forest farmers who sustainably grow and forest farm American Ginseng.
