- Additional Plants: herbs, ornamentals
- Production Systems: general crop production
Small woodland owners derive little regular income from their properties while providing many benefits to the region: watershed protection, recreation, wildlife habitat and more. If these often family owned parcels are to continue to provide open space for surrounding communities it’s important that some regular income- aside from infrequent logging- sources be developed. Our goal is to experiment with trial plantings of three high value medicinal herbs -St. Johnswart, Goldenseal and Ginseng. All three plants are compatible with mixed environments found at a typical Northern New England woodlot.
