Herbalist & Alchemist’s 2008 initiative of giving educational prizes at shows and conferences gleaned from founder David Winston’s extensive publications, training materials and seminar recordings has become a major hit at the company’s booth at every tradeshow from Natural Products Expo East to Veterinarian Conferences.
The company’s “Build Your Library Contest” with books & lectures by company founder and noted herbalist David Winston, RH (AHG) was recently offered at Expo East, the New Hampshire Naturopathic Conference, the American Holistic Veterinary Medicine Association (AHVMA) Conference and the American Herbalists Guild (AHG) Symposium.
The “iPod Library” winner at Expo East, Held in Boston October 16 - 18 was Cyclone McCrone of Herbal Path Pharmacy in Dover, NH. Cyclone said “I’m overwhelmed.” He just loves David and was really looking forward to the lectures.
At the AHVMA’s 23rd annual conference held in Reno, NV October 11-14, the library winner was Carol L. Falck, VMD of the Friendship Animal Wellness Center in Pompano Beach, FL. When the company offered to ship the library to her, she replied that she wanted to take the library with her so that she could start reading right away on the plane. When reached a few days afterward she said how much she was enjoying everything and had already learned so much listening to the CD’s and reading the books.
At the 19th Annual AHG National Symposium held October 24-26 in Redmond, Washington, winner John Gallagher said “Wow, I'm in shock. I never win anything. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.” (photo attached)
Library winner from the November 7-8 New Hampshire Naturopathic Conference held in Nashua, NH, Khumpani O'Hara from Montpelier VT, has known David for years. O’Hara said “I am a thrilled and happy herbalist! It will be a good winter. I will be listening to and reading the entire library!”
“Education is as important to our customers, be they retailers, practitioners or veterinarians, as the quality of the products they recommend,” said company CEO Beth Lambert. “The booth was packed when David gave a mini seminar at Expo East, and the number of people registering to win a library of David’s books and CD’s grows exponentially each time we do this.”

For almost 40 years, David has been studying, practicing, teaching and researching Cherokee, Chinese and Western herbal medicine.
