Award-winning horticultural consultant Sue Minter will discuss the contribution plants have
made to human health via the development of pharmaceutical drugs as well as herbal
remedies. The lecture will be based on the development of the Pharmaceutical Garden at
the Chelsea Physic Garden in the 1990s, where she was curator, as well as the
ethnobotanical Garden of World Medicine.  It has been the scene of some of the most
important developments in the history of horticulture, medicine and twentieth-
century agriculture.
Sue Minter is the author of The Healing Garden, The Well-Connected Gardener, The
Apothecaries Garden and The Greatest Glasshouse. She was a founding member of the
Botanic Gardens Education Network and PlantNetwork, chair of the Herb Society and
president of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture. Her work in botanic gardens has seen
her as supervisor of the Palm House at Kew in the 1980s, curator of the Chelsea Physic
Garden in the 1990s and then on to be the horticultural director of the Eden Project.
