About The Instructor

Yvette has been working with plants and especially herbs her whole life. As a botanist and self taught herbailist, she is keen to share her passion and knowledge with people to empower them by being able to use the plants available to us as remedies and as health supporting agents. In the last 6 years she has become acutely aware of how important the natural growing of our own food and medicine is, the priority of soil health and the sharing of knowledge and assets amongst each other.
