Everyone’s favorite grassroots herb movement has changed its date of celebration from the fall to the first Saturday in May, so mark your calendars for HerbDay on May 1, 2010.

HerbDay is a day for celebrating herbs in your community—in any way that you wish! When you schedule your local HerbDay event, get the word out by posting the details on the national HerbDay website ( www.herbday.org ) and our calendar at www.herbcompanion.com/calendar . You can also check the calendars for events that may be taking place in your area.

HerbDay Austin 2010 (the American Botanical Council’s HerbDay celebration) will feature presentations by Mark Blumenthal, executive director of the American Botanical Council, and herbalist and acupuncturist Christopher Hobbs, in Austin, Texas.

HerbDay was moved to the spring because plenty of fresh herbs are available at that time, according to Gayle Engels, HerbDay coordinator and special projects director for the American Botanical Council. The event was founded five years ago by five nonprofit organizations (the American Herbalists Guild, American Botanical Council, American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, American Herbal Products Association and United Plant Savers) as a grassroots way to celebrate herbs.
