The Mountain of Medicine July 2014

Yesterday I visited the Mountain of Medicine for the first time in a long while. Was amazed at the development of the facility -- it is has grown to be a lush oasis right in the heart of Ramana Nagar. 

The Mountain of Medicine is located less than a five minute walk from Ramana Ashram, and is comprised of a nursery where young saplings are grown for planting on Arunachala, beautiful gardens with ample seating and an increasing popular Childrens' Park which is inundated with up to 1,000 kids (and not so young kids) in the evenings and weekends. 

Currently The Mountain of Medicine is completing the preparation of 10,000 young saplings that will be planted on the Hill at the start of the rains (in around a month). 90% of the trees and shrubs at The Mountain of Medicine are for Hill planting purposes, but the Trust does invite walk-ins to purchase plants for their own use.
