image-6Over the last 27 years hundreds of thousands of trees have been planted and cared for on the hill. This has resulted in an amazing regeneration of the forest with an ever growing tree cover and return of wild life.  There has been a dramatic increase in Avi Fauna, small mammals and deer in the region.  A steady stream flows for many months each year from the afforested slopes which recharges many water bodies at the foot hills and in turn helps the residents of the town and the farmers.

The ARS has maintained a nursery for indigenous varieties of trees which in addition to supplying the trees for planting on the hill have also been distributed to schools, colleges and other institutions.

image-4The ARS has run an organic farm on an 8 acre land since 1992. The farm has served as a model permaculture farm for many years and provided training for many aspiring organic farmers.
The ARS has conducted awareness programmes in schools and colleges and conducted training for people in various fields.

The ARS continues its activities on the hill and the farm. Having ensure a thriving growing forest on the slope behind the ashram, it is now focussing on greening other parts of the hill.
