Website 71 participants 29 spottings

Historically the majority of the toxins and medicines used by people have come from the plant world. The aim of this mission is twofold: to celebrate the natural beauty in plant species which produce chemicals of a toxic and/or medicinal nature, and to increase knowledge, awareness and perhaps caution towards said species where needed.
