Listen to the Plants.


I love The Bureau of Plant Industry. Founded back in 1930 when Malate was still a quiet seaside hamlet, it stands as one of the last green spots in the city. Open to the public M-F from 9am-5pm, you can buy plants, flowers, and wander through gardens and greenery; but the best thing about the BPI is that they TEACH you about plants as well. BPI offers courses on how to build your own greenhouse, how to start your garden, and even how to start your own MUSHROOM farm. I saw cacao plants, lowland strawberries, and avocado trees on sale. One day I’ll have the time and land to get this dream garden done. Meanwhile, at least I have this place. 
692 San Andres St. – Tel.5257857 or 5257909. Call or visit, it’s right next to the palengke. #vivamanila #sanandres #malate
