Discover traditional herbal remedies and wonderful folk lore through this engaging theatrical tour.
Modern botanic gardens have their origin in the physic gardens of old; so, what better way to explore this connection than to meet the Saint of Gardeners himself, Brother Fiacre. This Irish medieval monk will be dressed in a simple brown robe, with a string belt, sandals and a monk’s tonsure (distinctive bald hairstyle). In his charming humorous way Brother Fiacre will share with you his passion for treating the sick and the ailing, using plants from the physic garden. You can also pick up some useful tips from this interactive approach how to interpret the wonderful plant collections and special sections in your Botanic Garden.
