AHG Community Service Award Criteria & Nominations

Nominations Now Being Accepted for the 2017 AHG Community Service Award

The American Herbalists Guild Community Service Award was established to recognize individuals, projects or groups that are making outstanding contributions and lasting impact in the field of community herbalism through their knowledge, skills, and or services on behalf of others on a local or national level.

The recipient of the award is recognized with a plaque award at the Annual General Meeting of The American Herbalists Guild, to be held October 7th, 2017 at the 28th Annual Symposium in Silverton, OR. In addition, the recipient will receive funding in the form of a cash award of $1000.00 to further their community efforts. Funding is made possible by donations and contributions received from the AHG Annual Silent Auction Benefit. 

Help the AHG honor those in our community that are making a difference in the lives of others!

The application process is open to all, though preference is given to American Herbalists Guild members. We are particularly interested in funding community herbalism projects that:

  • offer low-cost, sliding-scale and free services
  • have identified and serve a special needs group or an underserved segment of a community
  • have a proven track record of service 
  • serve diverse communities and do not discriminate against anyone on the basis of religious or political beliefs, gender, age, sexual preference, economic status, or ethnic background.

How to Apply for the AHG Community Service Award

Any member of the American Herbalists Guild may make nominations for themselves or others in their community. Each AHG Chapter is especially encouraged to nominate one person or group for this award. Nominations may also be made at the request of the AHG council.
