We are around 250 inmates and sisters at Mount Rosary , 200 are various inmates either living in the re-habilitation ward of Tuberculosis sanatorium, home for the aged people, or at the home for the destitute. The rest are sisters and trainees. Hence every day we need food for 250 members and 16 daily wage workers, who labour in our agricultural enterprises. Our main food is rice and vegetables. We need also a sizable quantity of milk because of the sick and the aged and therefore we have a dairy. To provide meat, we have a small piggery and poultry and a goat rearing Programme. In the agricultural lands Mount Rosary Institution possesses, we have year marked five acres of land both for rice cultivation and alternatively for growing vegetables. In the other land that is available , we have around 500 coconut trees and a hundred cashew trees, even a number of Mango and Jackfruit trees and of late, we have planted a little rubber, Pepper wines and areca trees as well. Therefore we have enough production of coconuts for our whole year’s need, both for our food and for oil needs. Our rubber is just coming to yield. But pepper, areca etc. will come to yield in the near future.
