I wasn't sure where to post this...wish there could be a forum on 'tree bark' because I have a lot of questions about it and would love opinions. Will anyone be collecting sweet gum bark in the spring? Looking for large quantities of rossed bark. This makes me want to start talking about selling collectively/cooperatively, but I have yet to put all my thoughts into this topic (I have a lot thoughts/questions...just started a medicinal herb grower's cooperative in NC...)
anywho, please let me know if anyone is collecting and needs a market! Thanks much.
Whit - I will catch you up on the cooperative tomorrow. We have a long way to go but are gaining ground.
shomeroot - thanks for your response. I sent you an email.
The same fellow is also looking for:
cherry bark (thin or thick), mullein, marshmallow, rabbit tobacco (life everlasting), Blue Vervain, hyssop,Sumac berries, Queen of the Meadow, peach tree leaves and Uva Ursi in case anyone harvests this.
The person I am working with is looking for about 1,500 lbs of dried peach tree leaves. I am not sure on the price, but let me know if that is something you may be interested.
Thanks for your response. Hope we can work something out.
See if you can get some more information about this so I can determine if it would be worth while to followup on. I need some kind of price and how they would accept them. They would probably have to be bagged up to deliver to someone.
