Tuesday 23 July 2013 - 11:00 until 13:30
A lush oasis in the heart of London, founded in 1673 by the Society of Apothecaries to promote the study of botany in relation to medicine, then known as ‘physic’. Today the Pharmaceutical Garden displays plants used in current medicinal practice, and the Garden of World Medicine is Britain’s first garden of ethnobotany (study of plant uses by people of diverse ethnic origin). A set lunch in the covered outdoor café will follow a guided tour of this beautiful secret walled garden.
This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
