The Society of Chinese Materia Medica has a long tradition of organising hiking trips for students to learn more about medicinal herbs while hiking in different parts of Hong Kong. The first hiking trip in this academic year was held in Shing Mun Country Park on 25 September. While hiking and appreciating the beauty of nature, the teachers point out the medicinal herbs they see on the way to the students and provide them with information on the herbs. In addition to having a day out exercising and learning, the hiking activity contributes much to the building of friendship and a sense of community in SCM.
