Herbalist Robin Rose Bennett

Douglass Memorial Garden, aka The Native and Wild Medicinal Plant Garden, offers free outdoor herbal medicine education and is now in its 12th year. The medicinal garden began after Sustainable West Milford ‘adopted a spot’ at the triangle intersection of Clinton Road and Warwick Turnpike. The garden has developed into a medicinal sanctuary free of fertilizers and pest controls.

The plot is home to an abundant number of medicinal herbs and native plants marked by handmade stone tiles describing each species and medicinal use for the plant. The tiles are accompanied by a map of the garden and a hand-crafted bench for hard-working volunteers and visitors alike.
