Vrindavan - a mango plantation to promote the concept of Soil Conservation
In 2013, after the Uttarkhand floods, Swamiji decided to pledge a part of the Ashram to the concept of Soil Conservation so that such tragedies can be avoided in the future. The mango tree roots are best known for holding the soil together. So 1,000 mango trees were planted in an area called Vrindavan. A drip irrigation was set up and the mango trees were interspersed by coconut, jamun, banana, arecnut, papaya, and other such trees. Vegetable and flower growing has also been started there using purely organic fertilizers made in Gokulam Goshala. Vedic Havans are done there regularly to purify the atmosphere and promote plant health.
