The show displays over 500 medicinal plants used throughout history, in many different cultures. There are even workshops for learning how to grow healing herbs, and making vinegars and teas. And to top it off, they have a garden filled with giant sculptures inspired by Italian Renaissance artist Giuseppe Acrimboldo’s anthropomorphic nature paintings.
