Hi, I’m Elizabeth Heck, herbalist, author, and best selling online instructor.
Working with plants has been a big part of my life from a very early age. My involvement with these green allies has taken me through many stages, including work as a naturalist, plant conservationist, land steward, herbal medicine formulator and founder of herbal products company.
Through it all, it is bringing the teachings of plant medicine to people that has been most fulfilling, whether it’s teaching at herbal conferences or teaching online. There is nothing I enjoy more than nurturing the human/plant connection. I’m honored to be able to share my knowledge with students across the globe with my online herbal courses selling in over 150 countries. I’m especially honored to be sharing these teachings with you.
