WELCOME

Roots of Appalachia Growers Association (RAGA), established in 2000 with the help of Rural Action, is a nonprofit organization of medicinal herb growers. We are based in the foothills of Southern Ohio with membership reaching into other areas of Appalachia. We are a support network for growers, providing a wealth of information about how to grow, market and prevent poaching of ginseng and other woodland medicinals. RAGA also educates the public so they understand the value of growing these threatened herbs.

OUR MISSION

The Roots of Appalachia Growers Association is a non-profit organization, formed to Encourage, Educate, and Support the Growers of Medicinal Herbs.


Confidentiality/Security

Grower confidentiality is among our top priorities. We understand the need because we have the same need. Until wildcrafters understand that these roots are intentionally being cultivated, we will have an up hill battle.

Education

Because of the mindset of agriculture being conducted only in fields, people often believe it is ok to dig these herbs if they are "found" in the woods. RAGA actively seeks to change this type of thinking through education on many different levels.

Cooperation

RAGA is made up of growers with a broad range of experience with herbs. Gathering together collectively, all members benefit from knowledge that would not be gained individually. By sharing pertinent information with one another, members gain insight into better growing practices.
 

Membership: $35 Includes Rural Action membership, the RAGA newsletters, herb growing updates, access to RAGA web site, and full voting privileges. $15 Per additional household member. Organizational Sponsorship Choices are available as well. Due annually, January 31.
