The HFNZ Annual Herb Project Award is provided by the Herb Federation of New Zealand (HFNZ) members to encourage community projects that actively promote knowledge about the benefits and usage of herbs to the general public.
This may include their usage, benefits, or how to grow herbs; It may involve a public display or workshop, community garden, educational materials, or any other method that promotes herbal awareness. The award is designed to encourage projects that support Objective 2a (see below) of the HFNZ Constitution.
The project is typically one that has been undertaken in the last year (since the last HFNZ AGM) and may alrady be completed or still be in progress at the time of application. Consideration is also given to a new proect that is due to start, as long as it meets the project requirements and includes a timeline with some surety of occurring. The application can also be for a self-contained project with a long-term existing endeavour. A six monthly report is requried for new or ongoing projects (mid year and for the following AGM) to show current progress.
The successful project(s) will receive a financial award, determined by the HFNZ Executive, to recognise the work undertaken, or the importance of the proposed project.
The project must be led by either an individual financial member of the HFNZ, or a Herb Society or other group that is a financial member of the HFNZ.
Objective 2a of the HFNZ Constitition is:
“To promote education in the cultivation and use of herbs amongst the general public through the products of written educational materials, coordination of national programmes, presentation of public workshops and any other relevant activities”.
