I just got this great email from a good friend of Natural Home & Garden, Debbie Hindman.

Every year since 1995, the International Herb Association (IHA) has chosen an Herb of the Year to highlight. The IHA horticultural committee, with guidance from University of Illinois horticultural specialist Chuck Voigt, evaluates possible choices based on the herb being outstanding in at least two of the three major categories: medicinal, culinary or decorative. Other herb organizations throughout the country support the Herb of the Year selection and work together to educate the public about these herbs during the year.
