Medicinal Garden

The UConn School of Pharmacy's Medicinal Garden has been a labor of love for many including alums, staff, faculty, and students - full story here.  Planting will be completed on May 31 and this web page will be updated with the medicinal information pertaining to the plants, shrubs and trees that you see in the garden.

Thank you to all who have helped make this garden a reality.
