Conrad Richter has a Master of Science degree in botany from the University of Toronto.
He has been involved with Richters since its inception in 1967 when he was still a child, helping in the greenhouses and in the fields after school and on weekends. His interest in herbs took flight when he helped his father prepare the first Richters herb catalogue in 1970. He has worked on every Richters catalogue since.
He has a primary responsibility for research and development. Through his efforts many herbs new to gardeners in North America have been introduced for the first time. Conrad is responsible for the introduction of famous Richters varieties such as Orange Spice Thyme and Profusion® Chives.
Conrad has been invited to speak at many conferences, and has appeared on television and radio, and frequently writes for gardening and herbal magazines. Conrad welcomes questions on any aspect of herbs.
