HerbDay 2014 at the American Botanical Council
The 9th Annual HerbDay Celebration at the American Botanical Council (ABC) was an unprecendented success. More than 100 supporters came to ABC headquarters in Austin, TX, to take part in the festivities. Participants enjoyed herb walks, lectures from experts in the field of herbal medicine, and children's activities. Refreshments were generously provided by People's RX and Whole Foods Market.
HerbDay is a coordinated series of independently produced public educational events celebrating the importance of herbs and herbalism. HerbDay was initiated by five nonprofit organizations with interests in herbs and herbalism (the HerbDay Coalition) to raise public awareness about the significance of herbs in the lives of millions of people worldwide and the many ways herbs can be used safely and creatively for health, beauty care, and culinary enjoyment. The HerbDay Coalition includes ABC, the American Herbalists Guild, the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, the American Herbal Products Association, and the United Plant Savers. More at www.herbday.org.
