UCL - Paul Moens Medicinal Plant Garden

Living collection of medicinal, condiment and toxic plants.

The Paul Moens Medicinal Plant Garden is primarly an educational tool aimed at pharmacy, medicine and dietitian students but it's also freely accessible for everyone. It consists of an enclosure of about 20 ares surrounded by a 2ha50 park that hosts plots of herbaceous plants and sub-shrubs arranged according to the classic, systematic order of modern flora. It grows medicinal, condiment, food and toxic plants and is limited to indigenous or acclimatized plants. The park contains around one hundred tree and shrub species for medicinal use, as well as the Sculpture Garden.
