About Us

The Carolina Bamboo Garden was launched on May 6, 2000 in Sitio Tanza II, Bgy. San Jose, Antipolo City. The place which houses both indigenous and exotic varieties of plants is a fine venue for conducting researches on the various aspects of bamboo production and utilization. The garden was named after its founder and owner, Mrs. Carolina Gozon Jimenez.

The bamboo garden is a project of the Majent Foundation and the Ecosystem Research Development Bureau (ERDB). It aims to serve as show window of bamboo research and development and an information center for individuals interested in putting up bamboo plantations. Its vision is to help create ecologically balanced and clean environment by way of propagation and distribution of best quality exotic and indigenous bamboo seedlings, and to promote best environmental practices through research and development.

There are 27 bamboo species that have been collected and successfully cultivated in the Garden with the total area of 5 ha. In the garden, one has a good opportunity to enjoy diverse bamboo species, such as, Bayog (Bambusa sp. 1), Black bamboo (gigantochloa), Buddha’s belly (Bambusa tuldodes), Giant bamboo (Dendrocalamus asper), Yellow bamboo (Bambusa Vulgaris var. striata) and many others. Planting stocks used were offsets, culm cuttings and seeds.

You will not be disappointed when you visit the Carolina Bamboo Garden.
