Indonesia has a long history of looking to nature for medicine, from the eastern tribes of Papua who learned ways to use the jungle to combat illness, to the Javanaese Jamu lady who rides her bike around with a litany of traditional herbal concoctions to help people overcome a wide range of illnesses.

At Greenschool, we have acquired a huge collection of medicinal plants commonly used in Indonesia. These plants will be planted around campus in various medicinal gardens, as well as in select areas. It is a sizeable job, and thanks to dedicated students and parents, we hope to have the gardens in place by the end of the school year.

At the moment, we have a few jobs that need to be completed:
  1. Preparing Garden Beds for the Plants
  2. Researching Plants and adding the information to the Wiki (here is a great example of one completed by a student)
  3. Creating artistic Maps of the garden beds of the medicinal plant gardens.
  4. Planning where we will plant the various plants in the medicinal gardens
