Greece's medical plants are worldfamous. The climate is ideal for these plants, especially mountain slopes like the village of Vrastama. Lemon balm, sage, oregano and mountain tea all grow wild and the villagers gather them for their own use. During our hikes, local experts will help us to gather and identify the medical plants.
