Giron Botanic is a garden design and consultancy business that specializes in the cultivation
and propagation of tropical ornamental plants and fruit-bearing tree species, both endemic
and exotic to the Philippines. We provide garden design services and workshops related to plant life and nursery management.
As a partner of educational institutions, government agencies, and LGUs, our main objective
is to promote environmental awareness, and the importance of designing gardens with purpose
and positive intent. Our in-house plant technicians teach plant cultivation, propagation, grafting, marcotting, and other basic and complex concepts on plant behavior, garden management,
and plant care.
Second, it is a culture and arts center that houses the Museo ng Kultura ng Pagsisibuyas --
the birthplace of Bongabon Nueva Ecija’s famed Sibuyas Festival -- and Gallery A, an exhibition space open for Novo Ecijano artists, which also serves as a gallery that showcases the richness
of Filipino Culture and Philippine visual arts. It is home to the owner’s private collection
of contemporary art and Asian artifacts.
Recently, Giron Botanic’s Culture and Arts arm showcased the works of Switzerland-based Novo Ecijana artist, Pamela Gotangco, in an exhibit that paid homage to the Indigenous Peoples
of the Philippines. The exhibit was its maiden project.
Third, we are a lifestyle space that can be used as a venue for various occasions. On a “by reservation” basis only, we can cater to both small and large groups by serving up a feast
of home-cooked Filipino fusion dishes and desserts. We can also arrange day tours, as well
as bespoke tours around Nueva Ecija and Baler.
Created by Armando Giron, an environmental and cultural advocate known for being the former Vice Chairman of the Nueva Ecija Council for History, Culture and the Arts, and the “Father
of the Sibuyas Festival”, Giron Botanic mirrors his advocacies on environmental protection, art appreciation, as well as culture and heritage promotion and preservation. It is a destination
in Bongabon, Nueva Ecija, where environmental, heritage and cultural advocacies converge,
and where guests are free to commune with nature and immerse themselves in local culture
To date, we have recently partnered with the National Commission for Cultural and Arts,
and are in the process of organizing two (2) major cultural events that will be staged in the province of Nueva Ecija.
