HerbSpeak’s mission is to

Make botany more accessible in everyday life

Without plants, humankind would not have evolved to have such diverse and rich global culture. It is HerbSpeak’s goal to bring awareness to people in their everyday lives the intricacies of the botanical world.

From phytochemistry to ethnobotany and gardening, we are bringing the world back to its roots and putting the spotlight on our natural friends, making  plant wisdom accessible no matter if you’re living next door to the wild unknown, or stuck in traffic in the big city.

About the Host

Destynnie K. Hall (Author D. K. Hall)

Destynnie loves nature and has especially enjoyed studying ethnobotany and phytochemistry over the years. By channeling her love for plants into HerbSpeak, she hopes to connect with other nature lovers and inspire communication and action within the community. 

When she isn’t podcasting, she can be found reading, re-decorating her home, or playing with her cats. She frequently travels, giving her an excellent opportunity to experience the plant biodiversity across the world and share that experience with her listeners.
