    It is more than 50 years since I began my lifelong journey into the complex world of medicinal plants and an unopened packet of seeds still thrills me with delight.  Through the courses I offer, I create situations where others can experience this world. I have been a Grower, Educator and Herbal Medicine Practitioner for all those years and now my focus is on connecting with/experiencing/knowing the plants themselves in a more holistic way. Presentations include Conferences here and overseas.

    Documentaries: ‘Earth Whisperers Paptuanuku’ (New Zealand) and Numen (USA).

    Books: Weeds Heal. A Working Herbal; The Biophilic Garden. Connecting People, Plants and Inscape; In progress; A Women’s Health and Wellbeing Kite – A DIY guide. You can order Isla’s book in the US here.
