Huntingdon’s new cultural district partnership, 4 and More, will present its next Lunch & Learn event on Monday, March 12 at noon in the Natural Connection Wellness Center at the corner of 4th and Mifflin Streets in downtown Huntingdon. Ann Marie Wishard, expert herbalist and owner of Sweet Annie Herbs, will talk about the medicinal, cosmetic, and culinary uses of herbs.
Wishard, who moved her business to Huntingdon from Centre County fifteen years ago, has been studying, growing, and using herbs for almost four decades. She has formulated over 50 herbal and nutritional combinations to address a variety of health issues. She has spoken at Penn State University and other colleges, hospitals, retirement communities, and trade shows. Wishard has appeared on such nationally-recognized television programs as The Montel Williams Show, The Sally Jesse Raphael Show, and CNBC’s Alive and Wellness. A published author, she wrote Herb Talk: The Book That Grows in 1996, and has since penned several revisions.
