4th Farm Tourism Conference with Paradizoo

Paradizoo, a 12-hectare theme park that offers a zoo and paradise that is located in Mendez, Cavite, supported the  4th Farm Tourism Conference held last July 14-16, 2016. The latter aims to educate and increase awareness regarding the possibility of combining tourism and agriculture and generating income through it.

Paradise and Zoo- PARADIZOO

500 delegates from tourism, agriculture and investment sector  attended the event and explored one of the successful farm tourism spot in the country- Paradizoo.


The delegates were able to see first hand the best practices of Paradizoo in agriculture. Paradizoo uses hydroponics, wherein the plants get their nutrients from water and not through soil, compost pits, turning wastes into fertilizer, vermiculture, process wherein worms is used to decompose organic food waste to nutrient rich material that can sustain the growth of a plant, and bokashi soil.

Aside from seeing the best practices, they were able to observe how  Paradizoo maintained the natural habitat of animals and plants by visiting  Farm Frenzy, Flower Garden, Vegetable Farm, Butterfly Garden and Bee Farm.

Delegates where able to feed the animals and be educated about them through Farm Frenzy. Farm frenzy houses donkeys,cows, camels, ducks, ostrich, birds of different kinds, pot belly pig and collection of Dorper sheep, Boer, Kalahari, and Saanen dairy goats, Rusa and turkey from Australia. They were able to learn on how to properly milk a goat and the products that they can acquire through animals in the Farm.

The Flower Garden amazed the delegates with the beautiful flower collection and arrangement of Paradizoo. Part of the garden is the Bonsai Garden facilitated by Atish Dipankar Sarker, a Bangladeshi, who is known in th Bonsai industry. Atish shared his knowledge in taking care of Bonsai and how to generate income through it to the delegates. According to him, taking care of Bonsai is easy. They are like people who needs a little bit of sunshine, water and hates sudden changes.

Zoomanity Group

Mr. Robert Yupangco and the Zoomanity Group imparted to the delegates the opportunities in having a farm and making it a tourist spot. According to Mr. Yupangco, having the latter enables to cut the middle man or suppliers in your business,  because instead of buying to them, you can have your restaurant or cafe's ingredients like milk, vegetables, meat, honey and fruit; decoration and ornaments from your farm. Aside from that you do not need to purchase fertilizers for your plants because you can  use your animals' waste for it. He also shared his vision for Paradizoo which the delegates are eyeing for.

Soon Zoomanity Institute will rise in Paradizoo
