Forest farming is an agroforestry practice that involves production of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) beneath the canopy of an existing forest, while maintaining or enhancing forest health through productive conservation. Several forest farmers will be featured who cultivate a variety of NTFPs (mushrooms, medicinals, ornamentals) using three different approaches to income generation including selling the organ of medicinal interest (rhizome, etc.), propagating planting stock for others to grow on, or by selling “medicinal” plants as ornamentals.
