Scholars Visit Royal College of Physicians Medicinal Garden
Joined by REEP Director, Diana Lazenby McLaren, our three scholars spent yesterday at the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) Medicinal Garden, near Regent's Park in London. Garden Fellow, Dr. Henry Oakeley, gave them an excellent tour of the gardens, teaching them about the use of many plants in medicines past and present. At the end of the day Dr. Oakeley treated them to a peak at the RCP's Herbarium where they were able to see how plant specimens have been collected, pressed and preserved by the college over the years. Nezha was so inspired by this that she has vowed to begin an herbarium of Essaouiran plant species when she returns home next week!
