Reece was a herb nerd long before he got his Bachelor degree in Health Science (Naturopathy). It's been a lifelong passion for all things green and herbie.
At ten years old, on a farm in country Western Australia, Reece would try to recreate his grandfather's phenomenal veggie garden (with varying success) and even then could be found making a mess in the kitchen. Fast forward to today, and both of those habits are still going strong.
As a model with Chadwick Models, Reece's colourful career has seen him working with fitness and fashion brands all over the world, and even making a guest appearance on two episodes of The Ellen Show - in nothing but his undies! A self-confessed gym junkie, it was Reece's love of exercise, good nutrition, and natural wellness that led him to study a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) at Endeavour College of Natural Health.
Herbal medicine was once a household skill, but years of running to the pharmacy for a sniffle or to the supermarket for a scratch has left us without the know-how to brew a tea or infuse a tincture to manage those daily health complaints. So Reece created 'The Garden Apothecary' - his mission to empower you to turn to the garden or the pantry for your wellbeing, and rediscover the potent medicines that have been masquerading as foods.
As a renowned herbalist, Reece has earned himself the nickname "herb-nerd" in the wellness community, and his writing has been featured in the Australian Women's Weekly, GQ, Women's Fitness Magazine, Wellspring, Lorna Jane's 'Move Nourish Believe', BasilHealth, The Practical Man, and Sporteluxe, and countless other digital and print publications.
