Hobart, IN (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
A legacy of providing timely and timeless information about herbal remedies, nutritional health, Americana, and vitamins continues in a new age. According to Tim Cleland, President, Indiana Botanic Gardens, Inc., “Our new health blog is a continuation of a tradition that began 75 years ago with the publication of The Herbalist Almanac. It’s always been about providing timely, relevant and new information to the health-conscious consumer.”
A Long Tradition of “Blogging” Continues
To say that Indiana Botanic Gardens, Inc. wrote the book on herbs, is not an exaggeration. In fact, the company’s founder wrote one of the earliest and most comprehensive herbal books written, The Herbalist, now in its tenth reprinting.
In 1925 Indiana Botanic Gardens began producing an annual publication, The Herbalist Almanac, a condensed and updated version of The Herbalist, which also served as the first-ever product catalog. In an age where medical expertise was not always readily available or affordable, The Herbalist Almanac, which ran for 50 years, offered the public valuable medical information on most of the common ailments of the day – including malaria, tape worms, rheumatism and more, along with herb descriptions, remedies, recipes, and customer testimonials
The Herbalist Almanac gained in popularity and mail poured in from all over the world including universities, libraries, botanists and people from all walks of life, both contributing to and seeking information. Today Indiana Botanic Gardens, Inc. is still a first source of information on herbal matters for thousands of people.
