Herbal Dispensary

Herbal Dispensary

“We opted for a minimal intervention here by adding simple bench seats, shaping some informal beds and adding medicinal and culinary herbs and flowers to what was already established.”

We saw an opportunity to green this site and add a comfortable meeting and reading area beside the Gap Filler ‘Think Differently’ Book Fridge. This site was the former Herbal Dispensary and already had some wildflowers and herbs growing, so we wanted to keep with this theme.
We opted for a minimal intervention here by adding simple bench seats, shaping some informal beds and adding medicinal and culinary herbs and flowers to what was already established.
The plantings were started in December 2015 and we will continue to add more plants over the coming months.
