Forest Site Assessment and Planning from Seed to Harvest: An ASD and ABFFC Multi-day Forest Farming Intensive This ​intermediate​-to​-advanced ​level ​training ​is ​designed ​for ​growers ​who ​understand ​the ​basics ​of ​forest ​farming ​and ​are ​ready ​to ​get ​to ​work ​and ​take ​their ​operations ​to ​the ​next ​level. ​The ​multi-day ​workshop ​will ​give ​growers ​of ​forest ​botanicals ​like ​ginseng, ​goldenseal, ​black ​cohosh ​and ​more ​an ​opportunity ​to ​gain ​practical, ​hands-on ​experience ​with ​the ​technical ​aspects ​of ​individualized ​planning, ​growing, ​and ​planting. ​Attendees ​will ​hone ​their ​plant ​identification ​skills, ​learn ​propagation ​methods ​in ​a ​hands-on ​environment, ​and ​prepare ​voucher ​specimens. ​They ​will ​gain ​important ​background ​knowledge ​on ​federal ​regulations ​and ​learn ​how ​to ​estimate ​plant ​populations ​in ​the ​field. ​During ​the ​training, ​attendees ​will ​work ​together ​with ​our ​experts ​to ​develop ​sample ​forest ​farming ​plans ​using ​lands ​owned ​by ​UVA-Wise. ​This ​will ​give ​plenty ​of ​practice ​and ​take-home ​knowledge ​for ​attendees ​to ​make ​workable ​and ​lasting ​plans ​for ​their ​own ​sites. ​Experts ​including ​Jeanine ​Davis ​and ​Eric ​Burkhart ​will ​be ​guiding ​participants ​through ​a ​series ​of ​activities ​meant ​to ​deepen ​the ​grower’s ​skillset, ​allowing ​them ​to ​further ​their ​own ​forest ​farming ​operations ​back ​home.
