Plants to Medicine Walk

When

Saturday 5 August 2023 from 10:30am to 12:30pm

Cost

Starting from: $40.00

Worldwide, over 25,000 plant species have been listed as having medicinal properties.

Millions of people in developing countries rely on traditional medicines for their healthcare, while in developed countries unique chemicals have been extracted from plants and used to produce prescription medicines.

Our volunteer guides have selected a range of plants that tell the story of plant use in traditional and complementary medicine as well as how they have been used to develop modern drugs for use in cancer and other major diseases.
