The American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) and American Botanical Council (ABC) HerbWalk participants will visit James (Jim) Duke's Green Farmacy Garden for a guided tour of its botanical garden. Hop on the bus and join a faculty of renowned herbalists to learn about culinary and medicinal herbs and their traditional uses from a sanctuary of approximately 300 native and non-native species of plants that have been used traditionally and/or researched for medicinal purposes. Hearing about the various herbs from the experts will make this event one of the highlights of your Expo East visit.
The Green Farmacy Garden is located in Fulton, Maryland. Retired USDA botanist, James A. Duke, PhD, and his wife, Peggy, have been collecting medicinal plants for over 60 years, and in 1997, they transformed part of their pasture land into a teaching garden highlighting the plants that are featured in Jim's book, The Green Pharmacy. The Green Farmacy Garden is also a part of the United Plant Savers network of sanctuaries around the country, which strive to educate the public and replant native plants that have become at risk or endangered.
