Meet Hannah: A city herbalist with her heart in nature

Nature has always been a constant companion for me. Making perfumed water from rose petals and enormous daisy chains as a child in my parents’ garden, and writing elaborate stories about the animals that visited there. Birdwatching at Whisby and doing sponsored walks for nature charities in my early teens. Supporting the campaign, as a young adult, against the felling of beautiful forestland around an area I used to live … Little did I know then, that it would all lead me to herbal medicine, and training as a medical herbalist.
