Qui est Yrtti-Jyrki - le/la Doer

Well along my forties I took a break from nine to five work at the office and went back to college to become a Natural Resources Producer, specialized in household and commercial use of wild herbs and berries. And while at it, I then continued towards another vocational degree in Tourism Services, and became an authorized local guide in Lahti, Finland.
For the past several years, I have been giving guided walks and workshops about herbs and other plants, and I don't plan to stop anytime soon.
