Rosemary Gladstar Receives First-Annual ABC Mark Blumenthal Herbal Community Builder Award

74;, and Mother's Milk®. In 1978, she founded the California School of Herbal Studies (CSHS), which is still in operation today as the country's oldest herbal school. In the following years, she founded the Breitenbush Herbal Conference, the International Herb Symposium, and the New England Women's Herbal Conference — the latter two of which she still directs.

"In those early days," said Gladstar, "when herbalism and herbalists were first peeking up from 'underground' — where they had rested quite contentedly, it seems to me, for a number of decades — there really wasn't very much going on herbally at all. We were rather isolated; there weren't newsletters, gatherings, or schools that I know of in the U.S. that served to bring us together. [So,] these early gatherings were revolutionary, really, and had a lot to do, I think, with nourishing and creating an herbal community. When I look at plant communities, they thrive together. The greater the diversity in the garden (or meadow or woodland), the better the health of the community. And it's certainly true of herbalists, as well."

In the 1980s, Gladstar created Sage Mountain Herbal Retreat Center, a 500-acre botanical sanctuary in Vermont where she currently lives and hosts educational events and programs. Additionally, she runs her commended herbal home-study course, "The Science & Art of Herbology," and has been leading the internationally focused Plant Lovers Journeys since 1986. Gladstar's several books on herbs — including Herbal Healing for Women, Rosemary Gladstar 's Family Herbal, and the 2012 Rosemary Gladstar 's Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner's Guide — regularly sell well and receive glowing reviews from her herbal peers and loyal readers. The United Plant Savers, which Gladstar founded in 1994, remains the project that she is most passionate
