“How can I use herbs in my daily life”by Isabell Shipard was launched on the 19th of June 2003, at the Nambour Library, on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, to an enthusiastic audience.

This superb book of herbs and their uses, is a valuable reference book for every home, and makes a practical gift for … husband, wife, partner, children, father, mother, friends and yourself …
Many years ago, at a regular feature of farm walks at the Herb Farm, a man said that he thoroughly enjoyed seeing and hearing about so many edible plants, but he would never remember everything, and he suggested that Isabell write a book of herbs and their uses, that was the beginning of the idea.
Over the years, many people have echoed the same thoughts, and encouraged Isabell to write, saying how much they have appreciated the interesting articles that were printed in a number of magazines.
But, where to find the time to write, in long days of herb farming, answering the phone, mailing out orders, etc? Then in 2001, Derrick (Isabell’s husband) retired, the farm was handed over to the family, and time was made for researching and writing.
Isabell says, “However when I started writing, I had no idea of the magnitude of such a task, and it has been a long commitment of time, energy and resources. Neither, was I aware of all the possible costs involved with such a book.
Then it looked as though the manuscript would be too large for one book, and it was suggested that it be printed in two volumes”. In the end, a decision was made to format it into one book, and this will probably still be the most cost effective.
Isabell’s book of herbs and their uses is relevant to many countries.
The information presented in this herb book for growing spices, rare edibles, herbs and other plants with culinary and medicinal uses; and the research on how herbs can be used for alternative medicine, herbal remedies, herbal nutrition, alternative pain relief, is relevant and applicable to many countries, climates and cultures throughout the world.
