Silent Auction

Donate a Silent Auction Item for a Good Cause

On behalf of the Governing Council of the American Herbalists Guild, we ask you to consider donating an item for the silent auction to be held at our Annual Symposium. The proceeds from the auction are used to fund our community awards. 

Community Service Award

The American Herbalists Guild Community Service Award is given once a year at the Annual Symposium to honor an individual or group that has contributed significantly to the herbal profession, making a lasting impact through community or environmental service related to herbal professions on a local or national level. Past recipients include the Arizona Ethnobotanical Association, the Sage Mountain (VT) Health & Wellness Clinic, Natural Doctors International, the Common Ground Collective in New Orleans, the Ithaca (NY) Free Clinic, and the Alternative Access Healthcare Campaign of Seattle.

Notable Work Supporting Diversity, Equity, and Justice in Herbalism

The AHG Award for Notable Work Supporting Diversity, Equity, and Justice in Herbalism is an annual award from the American Herbalists Guild to recognize outstanding accomplishments in herbal medicine that address health care needs, and strengthen herbal traditions, heritage, and wisdom within diverse communities.  Above all, this award recognizes communities speaking with their own voices and on their own behalf.
