Rosmarie, a graduate of York University with a BA in Conservation
and Environmental Studies started Helping Nature Heal in 2001.
Rosmarie and her team have pioneered a technique to remediate
erosion – a plant based management technique used to remediate
and slow down erosion. HNH is currently working along the
shoreline from Shelbourne to Halifax and along both sides of the
Northumberland Strait. HNH is looking forward to ‘going global’ in
the near future and has won many awards including the prestigious
HB Nichols award from the Coastal Zone Canada Association.
