Date:4/23/2013

AUSTIN, Texas, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Herb lovers in more than 13 cities in 11 states and the District of Columbia are set to take part in the 8th annual HerbDay celebration on Saturday, May 4.

Scheduled events include lectures and workshops, herb walks, in-store cooking demonstrations, presentations by herbal product companies, and herbal-themed children's activities.

"Herbs enhance the value of our gardens by providing plants with incredible flavors, rich fragrances, and healthful, useful properties," said U.S. Botanic Garden Executive Director Holly H. Shimizu . "They give us opportunities to add to a garden's intrinsic beauty, texture, and charm."

HerbDay activities are held at retail stores, schools, farms, botanical gardens, garden centers, and public parks worldwide, on and during the weeks preceding and following May 4.

"Greater familiarity with herbs will increase informed use of herbal products and build public support for maintaining personal choice in the use of botanicals," said David LaLuzerne , who oversees the HerbDay celebration at the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin. "Last year's HerbDay attracted more than 200 herbal enthusiasts for a day of herb classes, herb walks in the garden, and herb displays in the Commons area. It included individuals, businesses, and organizations that share a love and passion for herbs and herbal medicine."

HerbDay was conceived of in 2006 by the HerbDay Coalition, five nonprofit organizations, to raise awareness of the significance of herbs and the many ways they can be used safely and creatively for health, beauty, and culinary enjoyment. The HerbDay Coalition is comprised of the American Botanical Council,
