The Medical Herbman Cafe Project (MHCP) was created by Japanese landscape designers ‘Earthscape’ and involved planting medicinal and fragrant herbs in the shape of humongous man. Another interesting thing about this garden is that the herbs planted in certain places of the body actually benefit that anatomical body part. But, wait—there’s more. Aside from being a creative garden, it also doubles as a cafe, kitchen and craft space.

In every new location Earthscape plants the Herbman garden, it sells herbal drinks and foods from their recycled shipping container cafe. This amazing project is also used to construct playgrounds for schools in developing countries. My garden was never able to do that.
