Garden of Good and Evil
After a delicious morning tea at Lion Gate Lodge join Volunteer Guides on a walk to discover some of the 'true qualities' of plants. You will see plants that provide us with so many things including medicines such as the foxglove and ginkgo, foods such as the pineapple, fragrances and dyes as well as happiness! This walk beautifully complements the theme of the Botanica exhibition, 'In Sickness and in Health'. It concludes at Lion Gate Lodge where participants have the opportunity to peruse the exhibition.
"Oh mickle is the powerful grace that lies
In herbs, plants, stones, and their true qualities:
For nought so vile that on earth doth live
But to the earth some special good doth give,
Within the infant rind of this weak flower
Poison hath residence and medicine power."
Romeo and Juliet, II:iii
