Ginseng and forest botanicals are an historic industry in WNC and the Southeast. The North Carolina Natural Products Association seeks to address concerns related to wild ginseng populations created by the great demand and to highlight opportunities for income to be generated by sustainable harvesting and cultivation. Topics will include a growers training session, a roundtable discussion, presentations from academic researchers, business people, growers, wild harvesters, herbalists, and representatives of governmental regulatory agencies.
