U.T. Medicinal Plants Board, Chandigarh has developed 27 herbal gardens in schools & collegesto impart education and create awareness among students and teachers about our rich medicinal plants heritage. Students and teachers are using different parts of these plants not only to prevent and cure various diseasesbut also as a dietary supplement. Department of Forests & Wildlife is supplying quality saplings of medicinal plants from its Botanical Garden Nursery to individuals, institutions, organizations etc. free of cost. I appeal each & everyone to take advantage of this scheme and help promoting ex-situ cultivation of medicinal plants in Chandigarh.
