Botanica Ethiopia | A living pharmacy - Supporting the study of traditional herbs in Northwestern Ethiopia |

Working with the Fiche community, local partners and Global Development Group, the Botanica Ethiopia ‘Living Pharmacy’ project focuses on how native herbs can support the health of Ethiopian families and their communities.

The project involves local workshops to share and document traditional medicine knowledge and practices which are in danger of being forgotten. It has also involved capacity building in areas of permaculture design, small business development and modern beekeeping.

It is hoped that the herb garden will provide a model for replication elsewhere in Ethiopia, and a possible means of income generation for the Fiche community in the future.
