The past weekend couldn’t have been any better, despite the downpour. I was out of town (well, it didn’t rain the entire Saturday) and I am so glad to be part of this trip sponsored by the Zoomanity Group. And as I said on my Facebook page, I’m gonna share right here the awesome experience I had during my Tagaytay rendezvous. First stop: Paradizoo Theme Farm.
Paradizoo is a just one of the many parks of the Zoomanity Group that features animals that can usually be seen in farms. Goats, sheep, horses, camels (yes, camels), chickens, cows, rabbits, ducks, pigs and other farm animals can be seen in there. It basically gave me the feels of being in a huge farm, maybe except for the animals in obvious zoo cages, because apart from the farm animals, there are also several themed gardens where different kinds of flowers, vegetables and other agricultural stuff are featured.
So what are the things that you can expect to see in there? Here are some.
1. Farm animals. Just like what I’ve mentioned, the complete family of farm animals are present (and when I say complete, that means I’ve seen pretty much every animal included in that Old McDonald nursery rhyme 😂).
2. Variety of flower gardens, vegetables and other agricultural stuff. I am not exactly into gardening, and I like flowers only if they are given to me by the boy I really like. But Paradizoo ‘s flower gardens pulled out all the fascination in me to admire the wonder of God’s creation, cultivated by the suspected awesome farmers in this park. What’s more, there are also varieties of vegetable patches where different kinds of lettuces (I think I saw iceberg lettuces), pineapples, eggplants and other farm crops are being grown. The produce is guaranteed to be super fresh and virgin because the farm uses everything organic – from compost fertilizers to pesticides.
3. Plants and animals for sale. There’s this section called Farm Frenzy, where visitors can buy animals like rabbits, hamsters and love-birds. Then there’s the Plant Me Home area, where you can buy flowers and other garden plants that you can take home and cultivate.
4. The honey and butterfly factory. Yes, they also harvest authentic honey becaus the have a bee farm. Plus they also breed butterflies. We all know from gradeschool how essential butterflies are in the propagation of flowers, right?
5. Seminars and lectures on agricultural stuff. Another awesome feature in this theme farm is they offer lectures and seminars on agricultural stuff. Last Saturday, they talked about ethyline retardation, basically the process of keeping a fruit from ripening too fast, or a flower from withering rapidly. Then there’s also the lecture on how good soy beans and brown rice to our health and how to cultivate them in your own garden. Lastly, the lecture about bonsai grooming will take you to the next level of gardening simply because of the cost and the essence of what you’re doing.
You see, it wasn’t just a fun-filled and entertaining day but also educational and informative. So if you are someone who constantly looks (or lusts) for learning something new, then the Paradizoo Theme Farm is just the place to be!

Spread the loooove!
