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 9 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!
