Hidden Garden is collecting important plants that have been traditionally used for survival by local Caribbean people. Our Ethnobotanical Sanctuary serves as a community resource, supporting those who wish to continue the healing traditions of their ancestors, as well as an educational institution for documenting and disseminating information and stories about these practices. Take a tour!
1. Opening dialogue between elders, youth, community, doctors and academia about ethnobotany and ancestral medicine
2. Identifying, researching and propagating plants which are identified locally as botanically significant or endangered
3. Offering plant material and plant starters for members of the community free of charge
4. Providing digital and onsite libraries to share our research and educational resources.
5. Supervising research for university students and providing on-the-job training for local staff members.
