Both Botany 199/299 and Botany 205 students created bio-products made from organically grown honohono—grass-tea and cough drops to combat laryngitis; wine and tonic to ease dysentery; topical coagulant powders, cream and soaps to heal cuts.

It wasn’t independent study students but the Botany 205 students that created bio-products made from organically grown honohono—grass-tea and cough drops to combat laryngitis; wine and tonic to ease dysentery; topical coagulant powders, cream and soaps to heal cuts.
