WHO WE ARE
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 45 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.
Having visited bambusetum in Baguio and learning so much about bamboos, the idea of bringing this information through a bamboo garden, closer to the thickly populated Metropolitan Manila, started the development of the area into Carolina Bamboo Garden.
Through the assistance of the Ecosystem Research and Development Bureau in Los Baños, Laguna, a bambusetum came about.
