Ethnogarden clean-up at term-end

Cleaning up the ethnogarden on a rainy Thursday. Under the conditions only a photographic role could be taken. The class first cleaned up the area, then reviewed the local names, Latin names, and ethnobotanical uses of the plants in the area.

Not pictured: Jasminum sambac, and a variety of Ixora casei. Also not imaged is the struggling Myristica fragrans seedling.

The following photos were taken by Sandralyn Damarlane and bring a different aesthetic to the images. They provide a different perspective, perhaps narrative. These were taken after the cleaning was done during a plant review session. Local names, Latin names, and local uses for the plant.
