Herba Sana – the health garden


Healing with herbs, ‘Health in Harmony with Nature’ is the motto of the natural remedy manufacturer Ortis. In Herba Sana, the company’s own physic garden, the philosophy of this family enterprise is illustrated. There are 120 different medicinal herbs flourishing in these grounds, which have an area of two hectares. 450 information panels guide visitors through the Herba Sana garden and explain the multifarious applications to which these plants can be put. One of the beds is dedicated to digestive health, whilst another contains 25 healing plants which make it possible to put together a little apothecary from Mother Nature. Out beyond these diligently arranged beds, the natural landscape of the High Fens extends. In it, there are another 80 wild plants waiting to be discovered.
Guided tours for groups or programme proposals with ORTIS are available on request.
