I-AIM’s HERBAL GARDEN AND NURSERY

The unique green pharmacy at I-AIM Healthcare Center premises

 

Growing a green pharmacy at your home is not as hard as you think,  all what you need:

  • is small garden space,
  • or pots of suitable size and shape,  
  • and a green thumb.

You can harvest your own fresh ingredients for healing bath waters, infusions, decoctions and soothing balms.  There is nothing more natural and fulfilling to add to your household’s health. So, what are you waiting for?

If you turn to growing plants in your own garden or in pots, it would mean having a first-aid box of natural home remedies and cutting down on the need of running to a chemist store or doctor for many ailments, for prevention and for feeling well.

Situated in the hospital premises of I-AIM Healthcare Centre at Yelahanka, Bengaluru, is I-AIM’s Herbal Garden and Nursery, which has distinctively earned its reputation of being a one stop, trusted destination for herbal gardening enthusiasts not only for the city folk, but also for people from nearby villages. 

From the ubiquitous Tulsi, or Aloe vera to the memory enhancing herbs such as Brahmi and Jatamansi to the kitchen herbs such as mint and curry leaves to the natural insulin herb Madhunashini for diabetes control to the rare medicinal plants such as Saraca asoca and edible rudraksha, plants possess the power to contribute to your well-being.  

Your Medicine Cabinet in your Garden

At I-AIM nursery, plant species for your Home/Institution Garden have been carefully selected considering their medicinal value, safety and efficacy, ornamental value, ease of growing and maintenance.  

In the context of primary health care, our objective is to encourage more homes, schools, students, corporate houses and other institutions to adopt and grow medicinal plants and establish herbal gardens in their home/institution premises. In the process, young people will learn about the names, uses, and cultural and economic value of medicinal and aromatic plants, and how to manage these resources and the biodiversity they represent.

I-AIM Nursery’s Home/ Institution Garden Packages

Suitable medicinal plant packages can be chosen to meet the requirement of individual houses/ public and private institutions/organisations /parks which are available at affordable prices. A special User’s Guide is also provided with the package, free of cost, which has information about the identification, maintenance and use of plants for various ailments.
