Isabel has recently passed away.
Isabell Shipard's passion was herbs, and she loved to inspire and share the joys and wonders of natural herbs and their uses.
For over 30 years, Isabell and her husband Derrick, have lived on their picturesque farm at Nambour, Queensland, Australia, and grown, used and distributed herbs on the Sunshine Coast and by mail order.
Their large collection of culinary herbs, other herbs, spices, Fruit Trees, 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, sharing practical uses of herbs. Isabell has assisted universities and botanical gardens in sourcing plants for display and their use in research.
Shipard's Herb Farm Nursery is open to the public and has for sale a large range of herbs, spices, fruit trees, rare edibles, non-hybrid seeds, books and Dvd's and a range of other products available.
