Ramping Up for Home Harvesting

North Carolina State University Extension continued its Backyard Ramp Patch Project, giving out more than 15,000 ramp bulbs to the community to establish their own resources and lessen the impact of overharvesting native stocks. Extension agents also worked with the National Park Service to establish a new rule for members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians to harvest native greens in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
