Malabar Botanic Garden – an inspiration for Green Ahalia

On 28th March two Green Ahalia team members Mr. Shaibu and Mr. Sabik again called on Professor Sabu (who is also our Advisory Board member) at MBGIPS (Malabar Botanic Garden and Institute of Plant Sciences), Calicut along with Dr. Hareesh Scientist there and spent some quality time discussing about garden development. We had a quick round of their garden and saw the recent additions to the features of the garden aimed at improved amenities and attractions for visitors. We could see very interesting features added to the garden through sculptures, water fountains, water falls, streams, rockery and garden displays etc. The glass walls in their green net houses are innovation convenient to the visitors for clear view of displayed plants. These of course have fund and technological inputs. We delivered to them palm seedlings taken from our garden. Prof. Sabu gave us two of his valuable publications as gift.

In this trip the team also met Dr. Manju C Nair, Associate Professor, Calicut university and got few plants for our garden. These are significant additions to Green Ahalia.
