Learn from one of Australia’s most knowledgeable authorities on all-things-herbal.’ Isabell Shipard’s extensive herb course
In September 2006 Isabell Shipard held a herb course and a sprout course, on the Sunshine Coast. The courses were so popular that two more courses had to be run to accommodate the number of people wishing to attend the courses. The second courses were video taped and edited into DVDs.
Isabell covers many topics such as:
* Wonderful World of Herbs
* Herbs Have Many Uses
* Herbs as Medicines
* Good Health
* Plant Foods we Eat
* Botanic Names
* 29 Plant Families
* Additional Plants
* Weeds to Know
* Poisonous Plants
* Useful Herbs for your Garden
* Flavours and Colours
* More Oxygen to the Cells
* Methods for Using Herbs
* Plants as Sweeteners
* Income Opportunities
* Seed Saving
* Survival Foods
To get the most out of Isabell Shipard’s herb courses on DVD, it is recommended to also have Isabell’s herb book “How can I use HERBS in my daily life?” as the course gives a visual learning experience, but cannot in a few hours give all the information that is valuable about the herbs.
“Isabell has always been the source of plants and advice for many of us, her admirers. We can be proud of her encyclopaedic work on plants, which includes a vast reference background, as well as practical advice.”
Bill Mollison – Founder, The Permaculture Institute
Isabell Shipard’s passion is herbs, and she loves to inspire and share the joys and wonders of natural herbs.
For over 30 years, Isabell and her husband Derrick, have lived on their picturesque farm at Nambour, Queensland, and grown and distributed herbs on the Sunshine Coast and by mail order.
Their large collection of culinary and medicinal herbs, spices, fruit, rare edibles and seed varieties have been sought after by gardeners throughout Australia and internationally. They have supplied herbs for cooking demonstration by The Naked Chef Jamie Oliver, and displays for international expos.
For over 10 years, Isabell was a guest on ABC radio Coast FM for the popular segment, Herb of the Week. Isabell has assisted universities and botanical gardens in sourcing plants for display and research.
The farm has been featured on numerous TV programs, including Gardening Australia, The Great South East and Totally Wild. With Isabell s experience and knowledge of growing and using herbs as culinary delights, alternative medicines and herbal remedies, she has taught courses on herbs at the Sunshine Coast TAFE, and areas in Queensland, and has often been asked to speak at schools, herb and garden clubs, permaculture and organic growers-groups, expos and organisations interested in natural health.
