Celebrating Herb Day
Herb Day is a great day to celebrate the importance of herbs and herbalism, and to honor the practitioners, teachers, sellers, botanical gardens, farms, and everyone who uses and appreciates herbal medicine. Started in 2006 by a group of 5 nonprofit organizations (American Botanical Council, American Herbal Products Association, United Plant Savers, American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, and American Herbalists Guild), Herb Day falls on the first Saturday each May and is marked by events and festivities across the country.
Check to see events near you on the Herb Day website, or add your own!
Here at Mayway, we practically live and breathe herbs (as anyone who's ever stepped into our building can attest), and thought we'd offer something fun for Herb Day. Amuse yourself and test your knowledge of herbs with our Herb Quiz below. Also place an order between May 1-6 to be entered into a drawing for some cool prizes. Winners get to choose from:
