The Jackson County Public Library in downtown Sylva will host Cooperative Extension agent Christy Bredenkamp for a free seminar on ginseng production for homeowners who desire to grow “sang.”
Topics covered will include state regulations for growing and hunting “sang,” plant physiology, present and historical use of ginseng and comparing Asian versus American ginseng. The major emphasis of the program will be woods-simulated cultural practices such as: site selection and preparation, sowing, harvesting and drying the roots and seed stratification.
