About your teacher, Sarah Heath

“I’m dedicated to sharing the love of herbs and the many benefits they bring to your well-being.” - Sarah Heath

Sarah's journey as a farmer began in 2002, where she worked along side her mother to grow seedlings for the local fruit and veggie stores as well as channelling her passion to care for and use culinary plants in her daily life.  In 2013, Sarah brought and relocated Basilea Living Herb Farm with the dream of building a one-of-a-kind production, spray-free, reticulated hydroponic and organic farm specialising in herbs and edible flowers.  

Now she is supplying some of Brisbane’s fine dining restaurants, cafés and bars weekly and is also focusing on Basilea’s 'Eat today, Plant tomorrow’ seedling range, designed to encourage people to grow their own kitchen gardens, reduce waste and increase their health and wellbeing. 

Building into the future, Sarah has obtained her Production Horticulture Certificate as well as her Certificate IV in Training and Assessing Education and will shortly become a qualified horticultural trainer.  This will enable her to share her years worth of knowledge and intense passion at the monthly farm open days and guided workshops.  Looking forward to seeing you then!
