National HerbDay 2013
May 4, 2013!
It is not too early to plan your community HerbDay event. The American Herbalists Guild is working hard to ensure that every one of its chapters engages in this celebration. Please join us in marking your calendar and getting your thinking caps on now! HerbDay is an international celebration of herbs and herbal products that are packed with events aimed at educating and sharing ideas about the many ways herbs bring joy and well-being into our daily lives. We celebrate herbs' use in food, beverages, medicine, beauty products, and crafts, along with the art of growing and gardening with herbs. HerbDay is a grassroots movement and its events belong to everyone who chooses to participate. See HerbDay Website
How will you Celebrate HerbDay?
Previous years' HerbDay events have brought together professionals, businesses, and organizations that share a love of and passion for herbs and herbal medicine. These have included herbalists and health care providers who use herbs in their practices; authors, teachers, and lecturers with expertise in herbs; herbal product manufacturers and marketers; retailers and distributors of herbal goods; botanical gardens, parks, and schools; and, most importantly, individuals and families who love to use herbs.
HerbDay 2013 is expanding and promises to be even more fun!
Some Ideas: Plan a garden tour, host a lecture series, write a local article, organize a festival, give a guided plant walk, setup a market, present a speaker, sponsor a film, schedule a workshop.
Once you have your idea you can contact Mimi at firstname.lastname@example.org at the AHG to help promote your event and guide you through the process of registering your event with the HerbDay website. There are materials available to support your plans!
