The Maryland Forests Association, in cooperation with University of Maryland Extension and Forestry for the Bay, is conducting a Medicinal Roots of Appalachia and Forest Management workshop for family forest landowners, association members, tree farmers and forest conservationists.
The workshop will be Tuesday, Jan. 24, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Western Maryland Research and Education Center, 18330 Keedysville Road in Keedysville.
The workshop will explore the lore, tradition and science behind Appalachia's most popular and native medicinal roots, from the economically exalted roots of the culture such as ginseng and black cohosh to the local secret favorites like Solomon's seal, stoneroot and others.
The registration deadline is Friday.
