Śhakambharī Āyurvedika Audbidhīya Udyāna
Shakambhari Medicinal Herbal Gardens
The Soma Matha is working to plan a beautiful botanical garden of tropical Indian Ayurvedic herbs and native Appalachian and European medicinal herbs to be at the Shakambari Devi Temple in Richmond, Virginia. The long term goal is to have a massive greenhouse next to the finished Temple for the many Ayurvedic species along with a beautifully landscaped garden and arboretum along with hiking trails through the forest (Sacred to Goddess Shakambhari Devi). The Matha already has collected hundreds of Ayurvedic and Native American herbal plants and trees. Medicinal herb plants are being sold in season through various local farmers markets and stores.
