Herb Day was origionally created in 2006 by the HerbDay Coalition and takes place the first Saturday of March annually. Herb Day’s purpose is to draw together people with common interests in herbs (the leafy or green portions of plants). Its a way to spread knowledge throughout commuities whether it centers on culinary use, the wonderful scents they can diffuse through a room, or just or medicinal curiosity to let people know how and what to use and encourage them to do it more frequently.
