My achievements and anecdotes

Botany, a family story!

Botany, a family story!

My mother led me to discover botany. She was greatly influenced by Gisèle Lamoureux (...) and the publisher Fleurbec, who started to produce books for the general public, to get to know Quebec flora. These were not botanical volumes for the type of person with botanical knowledge, but rather targeted ordinary people. And that made all the difference. I think there are many people who learned about botany, thanks to those books.

My mother stirred a passion for botany in me. And now, it's my turn to transmit it to my daughter!
