Kangra Botanical Garden is planned to be a multi-faceted project that helps to integrate various different initiatives within EduCARE India as we aim to regenerate the Kangra Valley and beyond. With our community garden, food production and ayurvedic garden areas, there are many other purposes to the centre-piece botanical garden in Kangra. The gardens will be located on the EduCARE India and Maple Leaf Hospital Campus in Kangra:
A native and botanical plants / trees nursery is planned exclusively for display, sales, promotion and raising species found in the mid-Himalayas and Shivalik range focusing more on innovative native species nursery raising techniques.
A two-hectare core zone is dedicated to visitors, research scholars, students, and nature lovers.
Wooden bridges, café, souvenir shops, parking facilities, wooden huts, gazebos, a play area, open gym, will also be built in the park. A rainwater harvesting structure is planned for construction in the garden to create water bodies that can store several tens of thousand litres of water.
Protecting Native Biodiversity and Practices in Regenerative Agriculture
Kangra Botanical Garden will be visited and enjoyed by thousands of visitors per year, representing a tremendous opportunity for making the connection between the public and sustainable and regenerative agriculture.
Kangra Gardens promotes native biodiversity and regenerative agriculture through its focus on its Regenerative, Ecological and Syntropic Farming area. It has five critical practices for implementing biodiversity conservation that could be adopted by people in their agricultural and animal farms, and which fit with the regenerative farming philosophy.
The following themes are promoted:
- Think about how native biodiversity might be on your farm in future.
- Clearly identify the factors currently limiting or threatening native biodiversity now, which may do so in the future, as you seek to achieve your goals.
- Take a spatial approach to farm planning that is not constrained by the current farm layout.
- Implement adaptive biodiversity management at multiple scales across the whole farm.
- Continually monitor biodiversity outcomes and use this as the basis to refine management.
