We are delighted to have been able to be a part of different local festivals. Our researchers and experts who work on the garden have been joined by externals to chat about different aspects of their research and how the garden will help to educate others on what is going on inside our buildings. Check out our event recordings below.
Did you miss our live event during Dundee Women’s Festival? Not to worry as we have uploaded it for you on YouTube!
Explore with our researchers and experts all about Medicinal Plants and how some plants have been used within researching different areas of women’s health.
We were delighted to have our own researcher Irene Hallyburton for this event joined by Clare Reany from the Dundee Botanic Gardens as well as Kate Robinson who is the Head Gardener at Hospitalfield Arbroath.
We had so many great questions however we were not able to answer them all in the time we had so if you watch the event and think of any please comment on the video or tweet us @WCAIRDundee.
As part of the 2020 Dundee Science Festival, the Medicinal Garden Team held an online discussion event.
We had Irene Hallyburton and Kevin Frediani who work directly on the project and we also had Andrew Mtewa streaming live from Malawi who brought his expertise on natural products with medical values.
If you were hoping to come along but couldn’t make it. We will be putting the recording of the event on our Youtube Channel. This link will be linked here when made available. It will also be posted on our social media so to keep in the loop follow us by clicking the link below or following us on Twitter @WCAIRDundee.
For Dundee Women’s Festival, we developed some fun and simple activities available for all to enjoy! We’ve created colouring in sheets as well as a scavenger hunt and a word search.
Don’t forget to check out our garden library too where you can read the books suggested by our team. They used these books and websites to understand more about medicinal plants which impacted which ones those chose to put into our garden.
