THE MEDICINAL RESEARCH CENTER, CUBA
The Tree Institute has just begun an exciting new project in Cuba with an amazing collection of medicinal plants. There is a farm in central Cuba that is dedicated to the cultivation and research of native plants with medicinal attributes. The plants cultivated and researched have come from a long history of natural medicine and ethno-botanical tradition in Cuba. The TREE Institute is currently developing a strategy to inventory and document the activities on this finca as a basis to begin the systematic analysis of the biochemistry of the plant material.
