Holistic Health

Title: Ayur Vatika

Scope: Vertical garden with Ayurvedic herbs

India has a rich tradition of herbal remedies, practiced through Ayurveda and other disciplines. Due to lack of information and constraint in space, these herbs are not easily available in an urban environment. CSIR-NISTADS has developed an Ayurvedic Vertical Garden, ‘Ayur Vatika’, as a solution for herbal healthcare at home, along with web informatics.
