Nature’s Formulary LLC (Clifton Park, NY), Organix-South Inc. (Bowling Green, FL) and the American Botanical Council (Austin, TX) announce the creation of an Ayurvedic herbal garden at ABC’s Case Mill Homestead location in Austin, Texas.
Ayurveda is the 5,000 year old science of healthcare originating in India and now practiced all over the world. Commonly used Ayurvedic herbs include some of the world’s famous spices: Ginger, Turmeric; as well other herbs like: Neem, Ashwagandha, Brahmi and many more.
Start-up funding will be jointly contributed by Ayurvedic companies Nature’s Formulary and Organix-South. “Kristin and I are quite excited to be a part of this project as it will increase consumer awareness and exposure to more of the beautiful herbs from the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia” indicated Kate Goldrick, Key Accounts & Marketing Manager, Organix-South. Kristin Giuliani is National Sales & Marketing Manager at Nature’s Formulary.
Ayurvedic herbs will be selected with the help of Mark Blumenthal, Executive Director of the American Botanical Council. In addition, ABC will plant and maintain the garden for years to come.
Speaking at an event at the Natural Products Expo, Mark Blumenthal said, “ABC has been educating consumers, healthcare professionals, researchers, educators, industry and the media on the safe and effective use of herbs and medicinal plants since 1988 - we think this addition of an Ayurvedic garden to the extensive variety of herbal theme gardens to our Case Mill Homestead will help further the information and education about medicinal plants based on the world’s oldest system of traditional healing”.
