Herbalist in the North of France
This spring I went to visit Fanny Vasseur, a herbalist based in the North of France who is a member of Herbalist sans Frontières. Fanny's project was helped along by an association that helps young people with ecologically sound projects in all aspects of their installation. She has the use of two hectares of land owned by the association and a small workshop that she uses for drying her herbs and packaging them. Fanny grows most of the plants she uses for her herbal tea range but also wild crafts thyme and lavender in the south of France in her van, which is equipped with a solar run dryer. Fanny also runs family orientated activity afternoons around the them of medicinal plants.
