The traditional healers of South Africa, particularly those from the Zulu culture, use many indigenous plants for medicine. Over 1000 different species are on record as having a use.
Many of these plants are becoming threatened because of over-harvesting from their wild populations. This exciting project aims to broaden public awareness of the importance and uses of medicinal plants, and to highlight the over-harvesting problem and the complex social issues surrounding it.
We offer courses for those who wish to grow medicinal plants, which alleviates pressure on the wild populations.
