Garden Article

This programme contributes towards enhanced awareness and appreciation towards the State’s indigenous plants among all levels of society, creating a better understanding towards the uses of these plants, providing sufficient raw material for research on plants that may have potential in areas of product development, commercialization or drug discovery.

The Biodiversity Garden also provides a site for ex-situ conservation of useful indigenous plants collected under the Traditional Knowledge Documentation Programme.

Emphasis is put on the collection, propagation and planting of Sarawak’s indigenous flora, particularly useful plants that are used by the indigenous communities in the State.
