Indiana Botanic Gardens Inc., (IBG) celebrates its 99 year anniversary with a customer testimonial contest and special discounts throughout the year.
Hobart, IN (PRWEB) December 28, 2008 — Founded in 1910 in a small cottage in the rear of Joseph Meyer’s home in Hammond, Indiana, IBG began as a small independent supplier of hard-to-find medicinal herbs. Today, its Botanic Choice line has become the premium brand of condition-specific nutritional supplements. Botanic Choice stands apart not only for longevity but also for offering cutting edge formulas backed by superior quality, guaranteed potency, rigorous safety testing methods, and proven effectiveness.
In the beginning, the business barely made living expenses for the family. Joseph Meyer’s children assisted him with activities like gathering herbs from nearby fields, packaging boxes, feeding the printing press, and binding catalogs with needle and thread. The 1918 publication of the 400-page book, The Herbalist, enabled the business to expand from the small cottage to a beautiful English gabled building off Calumet Avenue. With great grandson, Tim Cleland serving as president, in 1990 the business moved to its Hobart location and has since expanded five fold.
