Henriette Kress - Virtual Herb Walk
We are delight to welcome Henriette Kress who
will conduct a virtual tour of herbs and flora native to Ireland and
Students will see what the herbs
look like, discover what they can be used for and how they are
Henriette Kress was first taught about herbs by her grandma a long time ago when she was very little. She used herbs as a hobby for a decade or three. She studied economics and worked as a finance manager but would have studied herbal medicine if such a degree was available at the time.
After finding her job as finance manager extremely boring, she studied herbal medicine with Michael Moore at his Southwest School of Botanical Medicine in 1998.
Henriette has worked full-time with herbs since then. Because Finland has no herb stores, Henriette picks most of the herbs she dispenses to clients. Henriette has written "Practical Herbs", a book for people who like to pick or process their own herbs. Practical Herbs 2 is awaiting publication.
Henriette's website is a hobby: http://www.henriettesherbal.com . It's the joy of English-speaking herbal enthusiasts everywhere.
ICTIM is very pleased that Henriette Kress, well known herbalist and author, has agreed to take you on a virtual herb walk.
