About Us

HAPPY WORKS presents events on creating with Nature to nurture wellbeing.


We imagine a future where our Nature is fully reintegrated into our society and culture, allowing the wellbeing of all to be nurtured.
We imagine a future where herbalists play a central role in connecting communities with Nature, and in the creative use of plants to nurture wellbeing. We imagine a future where herbalists provide community education and resources for herbal self-care, first-aid, disease prevention and wellbeing promotion. We imagine a future where herbalists contribute to herb cultivation, herbal product creation, biodiversity conservation, and herbal medicine policy initiatives.


To support the emergence of an integrative, holistic approach to nurturing wellbeing that is centred on Nature. To develop the resources and provide the education & training required to empower herbalists, and other healthcare professionals, to:
