About Harriet Birrell
Harriet Birrell is a young woman on a mission to celebrate the abundance of whole, colourful plant foods that are available – and to show people a different way to think about nourishing, delicious ingredients. Based on Victoria's Bellarine Peninsula, she started her food journey serving organic smoothies and raw desserts from a caravan on a bush block at Barwon Heads. This culminated in her first book, Natural Harry, the success of which led to Whole. When she is not cooking, or surfing, or tending her veggie patch with dog Fred by her side, she is busy working on her eco concept store inspired by the Natural Harry lifestyle. The emphasis here is on functional, consciously produced wares made of naturally occurring materials.
Harriet is a qualified health coach and yoga teacher, and has studied plant-based nutrition at e-Cornell University. She also has an advanced diploma in fashion design.
