The Ginseng Community

There are some great groups out there dedicated to stewardship and spreading the word
about planting seeds and helping newcomers to the ginseng world, or help experienced folk pass on this important knowledge. 


~United Plant Savers~ 
UpS is devoted to the conservation of at-risk botanicals like Wild American Ginseng. 
American Ginseng (an in-depth assessment page), 
Forest Grown Verified Program (for growers of ginseng and other medicinals)
The Forest Farmers Handbook 
The Future of Ginseng & Forest Botanicals: Symposium Proceedings (2017)


~Appalachian Beginning Forest Farmer Coalition~
ABFFC is a growing community of forest farmers, nonprofits, universities, educators and technical service providers that are dedicated growing opportunities beneath the canopy.
ABFFC's website contains many resources dedicated to Forest Farming 
and Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) like forest farmed and wild-simulated ginseng, ginseng cultivation, and other upcoming projects and initiatives.
