Mountain Rose Herbs

ginseng can sm

A wonderful arrangement that formed from our summit: Mountain Rose is the first company to now sell Forest Verified ginseng with 5% of the proceeds being donated to United Plant Savers

 

Why is this root so special?

We are proud to offer the first Certified Forest Grown American Ginseng in partnership with the United Plant Savers. This new project brings us organically grown ginseng roots that are cultivated in their native ecosystem. The roots are sustainably harvested from private forests that are stewarded by farmers dedicated to preserving this important medicinal plant for the future.

Each tin contains 6 grams of this valued botanical. These roots have been cared for in their natural environment for at least 7 years before they were harvested. They are much smaller than the organic farm cultivated roots that are on the market.

Mountain Rose Herbs will donate 5% from every sale of this precious ginseng root to the United Plant Savers.

We believe that supporting this effort can change the culture of ginseng throughout Appalachia, transforming the epidemic of black market poaching into a stewarded forest crop with sustainability as the guiding force.

We thank you for supporting conservation through cultivation!

Planting the Future: Stewardship of Sanctuary, October 4, 2014 at the Goldenseal Botanical Sanctuary in Rutland, Ohio.OCTOBER 4, 2014 RUTLAND, OH The weather was literally 20 degrees warmer with full sun the day before our big event at the Goldenseal Botanical Sanctuary in Rutland, Ohio. We were still in set up mode the evening before as the grumpy cumulus clouds moved in and hoarded the sky vowing cold, hard rain. But all hope was not lost on the incumbent weather, for when the temperature and rain both began to plummet, interspersing promises of sunshine were also breaking through, highlighting the autumnal mosaic like flecks of gold in stone and lifting our sense of hope with arching rainbows across the hollow. The morning of the event brought our first hail of the season, but that was no match for the steadfast queue of visitors lining up at the registration table. One can only apologize for the weather so much, until it becomes clear that weather has never really stopped those who want to learn from the fields and forests (albeit it can be quite the deterrent).
