Barberton Medicinal Plant Project

A project was conceptualised in Barberton to overcome a situation where traditional healers illegally harvest medicinal plants from conservation areas and in so doing, destroy the plants, resulting in a negative impact on the biodiversity. With there being in excess of 200 registered traditional healers in the area, central government committed to funding a project that would propagate and grow medicinal plants for the local traditional healers.

The commercialisation of medicinal plant growing is challenging and therefore the project is being supported with the growing of food crops for commercial sales. The project also entails the provision of infrastructure to support the deliverables stated above.
