AGRICULTURE & NATURAL RESOURCES

Center for Applied Technology – Marble

Introduction to Non-Timber Forest Products: Many understand the value of timber in the context of the region’s forest economy. Due to many factors, the economics of timber production can be variable at best and at worst, uncertain. Because of this and the region’s rich history in the collection, management, and marketing of plant species for uses as food, medicine, and fiber among other things there is present value, some unrealized as of yet, in the production for markets of those species represented in the forest for those uses other than timber. In this course we will explore the current state of affairs in terms of what species of economic value we have here in our region, along with an introduction to the skills and general knowledge necessary to recognize species of merit and how to collect, grow, manage and market some of those. If you have an interest in forest botanicals like American ginseng, black cohosh, goldenseal and even florals like galax and log moss this course is your formal introduction to that world. 24 hrs.
