Medicinal Herb Garden

The Medicinal Herb Garden contains the 50 herbs, shrubs and trees that are used currently in the Virgin Islands for medicinal and culinary purposes.

This Garden chronicles not only the history of the Weed Women of the Virgin Islands, but also the traditional usages of herbs from the plantation era slaves who served as doctors to the contemporary “bush doctors” who use many of the same plant materials. Some of these traditional medicinals are being studied by pharmaceutical companies today for potential uses.
