      London Herbal Medicine Garden will be Forest Farm Project off Hazelbrouck
      Gardens, close to Hainault Underground Station on the Central line. With
      support of Redbridge Councillors and Officers And tehnical assistance from
      Becontree Organic Growers',Local Residents plus BTCV volunteers have started
      to clear the land ready to recreate the original garden, some half acre in
      size. The collection was built up over the past 25 years by Hein and
      Annette Zeylstra, with their students at the College of Phytotherapy, the
      UK's leading educational institution for herbal medicine. Mr Zeylesra, who
      died in2002, was directly instrumental in the revival of herb clinical

      Bioscience at University of East London and College of Phytotherapy together
