The mission statement of the Herb Society of America is to "promote the knowledge, use and delight of herbs through educational programs, research and sharing the experience of its members with the community.
The Society is committed to protecting our global environment for the health and well- being of humankind and all growing things. We encourage gardeners to practice environmentally sound horticulture.
The Motto of the Society is taken from the herbalist, John Parkinson: "For Use and Delight"
Our Featured Herb is Tumeric
Turmeric is a tropical plant resembling ginger and growing about 3 feet tall from a rhizome.
The part of the plant that is harvested, crushed and ground is the rhizome.
Turmeric is known for its use in Indian cooking, dying fabric and other textiles as well as for its health benefits.
Turmeric is used in curry powder and is used around the world to provide color in commercially produced foods like mustard, ice cream, cereals, orange juice, cake frosting, chips, butter and sauces.
Among the healing qualities, turmeric is known to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic and pain relieving qualities.
