Passionate about our Indigenous Medicinal Plants? Come get your hands dirty in the Medicinal Spiral and learn with us!
The spiral currently has a collection of 60-70 medicinal plants that are endemic to the Southern Cape. Our goal is to expand this collection to 100 species or more which is only possible with help from the community.
Each month will be different, but the day may include:
🌼 Creating new beds
🌼 Planting in new species (depending on availability)
🌼 Moving plants around that might not be thriving
🌼 De-weeding of beds
🌼 Mulching the beds
🌼 Seed harvesting
By coming to volunteer you will get to know the plants, how to recognise them in the field, how to grow them, how to harvest them, how to use them, and so on.
Herbalist, Roxanne Joubert from Lady of the Herbs, will bring her Medicinal Plant books and knowledge and talk about the medicinal properties and uses of the plants that we are working with on the day.
The best way to get to know medicinal plants is to work with them hands-on.
When: Every second Wednesday of the month Time: 14:00 - 16:30
Where: In the Medicinal Spiral in the Garden Route Botanical Garden
The GRBG is an NPO and relies on the community to keep it alive. Therefore, we ask that you still pay the R20 entrance fee or get an annual access card for only R200 which gives you unlimited access a year.
Donations to organisers and the GRBG are also very welcome.
Please contact Roxanne on 081 361 6762 if you need more information.
