Exhibition (de)Tour: Medicinal Herbs by Ng Kim Chuan (Singapore), Gardener, of NTU Community Herb Garden

In conceptualising Quadra Medicinale (2009), Jef Geys asked local collaborators to identify plants that grew on the street, and to identify their potential medicinal or beneficial properties. The NTU Community Herb Garden is dedicated to the cultivation of such plants and is home to more than 300 species of tropical plants and herbs with medicinal properties. Ng Kim Chuan founded the Garden in 2009, together with a small group of volunteers comprising of staff, students and members of the public, to serve as a charitable resource of medicinal herbs for the poor and the needy. Ng will give a tour of the Garden, with the assistance of Lee Jin Long, NTU student, and share his knowledge and work surrounding these medicinal herbs, especially as alternative treatments for cancer and chronic illnesses.

Programme will be held in Mandarin.

Venue: NTU Community Herb Garden, Nanyang Technological University, Nanyang Avenue near Jalan Bahar Gate.
Meeting Point: NTU CCA Singapore, Blk 43 Malan Road
One-way transportation from NTU CCA Singapore to NTU Community Herb Garden will be provided.
