The idea to realize a garden for medicinal plants of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) here in Switzerland arose many years ago. It was the desire to make these plants experienceable for all those who come into contact with the remedies of TCM:
The TCM medicinal plants garden was ceremoniously opened on 30 August 2016 and presented itself in bright sunshine. Many interested in TCM have found their way to the ZHAW's "Grüentalgärten".
We are on the home stretch... Opening in one week!
Die ersten Pflanzen sind gepflanzt. Das Projektteam freut sich über die positive Entwicklung (v.l.n.r: Najad Brunschweiler TCM-FVS, Regula Treichler ZHAW, Nina Zhao-Seiler TCM-FVS, Nils Honetschläger ZHAW)
The construction work is in full swing. The outlines of design can already be seen.
The plants have been ordered and the first deliveries have already arrived. The construction of the TCM medicinal plant garden begins.
The contract between the SBO-TCM and the ZHAW has been signed. The project plan stands. The implementation begins.
The financing plan is created and the first partners were brought on board.
Inspired by a concrete inquiry by the Swiss Professional Organization for Traditional Chinese Medicine (SBO-TCM) to the phyton network (part of the FG phytopharmacy of the IBT), the idea emerged to build a medicinal plants garden for learning and research, which can be used by various training organizations and other interested parties for educational purposes.
