Silver Jubilee Memorial Herbal Plantation at Govt. Social Welfare Complex

About 700 inmates are living in different institutions at the Social Welfare Complex, Vellimadukunnu, Calicut. Out of this 80 inmates are in the old age home. Most of them are ailing with different deceases   also. As a part of the Silver Jubilee Year celebrations, Calicut chapter came forward to develop a herbal plantation in about 2 acres, adjacent to this old age home. About 300 big plants of different medicinal species have already been planted in the 1st phase. We have started to develop this as a herbal park with one thousand trees as a memorial of Silver Jubilee year.   The inmates of the institutions are taking keen interest in nursing the trees.
