Meet Your  Instructor

Hélène Hébert was an award-winning research scientist, inventor and professional engineer in the nuclear industry for over a decade. She left this career when she moved to a First Nation reserve, where she completely fell in love with food security. This is where she began designing her own indoor gardens, growing her organic food both indoors and out, and researching all-year-round gardening. Her researcher skills are put to good use when selecting the right approach for her students' gardens. She teaches complex concepts in simple ways so that gardening becomes enjoyable for all her students, regardless of their level of knowledge and experience. 

Hélène is now one of the Top 8 Gardeners in Ottawa (The Best in Ottawa). She is the creator of the Indoor Gardening Academy and the All-Year-Round Gardening School, two fully comprehensive online programs that teach new and experienced gardeners alike how to confidently grow organic food and harvest it every month of the year, even under the snow. She has also been teaching free in-person gardening workshops to gardeners of all ages and level of experience. These workshops are graciously offered to you by local non-profit organisations.

Her workshops are presented in 1-hour high-impact, fun lessons that will completely transform the way you grow your organic food at home all-year-round!

If you're not sure what tasks need to be done in the garden and when to do them throughout the year, it makes growing your food much less efficient. The result is that you lose on savings because you produce much less food than you could. Understanding which tasks need to be performed and in which month of the year allows you to be well-prepared and optimize your food production throughout the year. During this workshop, you will create your own annual task calendar for your indoor and outdoor garden using organic methods.

Isn't fresh garlic way tastier than what you can buy at the grocery stores? But it's so annoying to plant your garlic and only harvest tiny bulbs the next year. You're left wondering what you did wrong. You wish you could harvest jumbo size garlic like those you can get from the best professional growers.

You wanna learn some surprising tips to grow garlic that might change how you do things from now on? Come join me in-person on this workshop.
