About 100 Days of Ginseng

100 Days of Ginseng has grown out of an increasing need for ginseng awareness and stewardship,

combined with a passion for education and outreach (and a smidge of graphic design).


The idea is that every day for 100 days, there would one new educational graphic about ginseng history, stewardship, ethical harvest and further resources, counting down to September 1st, 2020. Instead of "ginseng season", it might be possible to create something of a "ginseng stewardship or

ethical harvest season". 

The hope is that each graphic might become a seed that could take root and grow into a curiosity, an interest or even passion for learning more about ginseng and helping to preserve the species. 

Ginseng's history, medicine, and it's importance to people and nature alike, illustrate how as a species, ginseng's value is far more than just a price.
