LA SALLE BOTANICAL GARDENS PROJECT

Marc Gepaya

De La Salle Philippines, through the Lasallian Institute for the Environment (LIFE) proposes to build the La Salle Botanical Gardens.

Global climate change, floods, landslides, loss of forest cover, coral reef destruction, biodiversity imbalances—all these problems can be traced to the lack of fundamental awareness and appreciation of how our environment works and sustains life. In line with its vision of being good stewards of God’s creation, the aspiration to build the Botanical Gardens is La Salle’s response to the pressing environmental and ecological challenges confronting the nation today.

The goal of this project is to provide a platform for understanding the problems and identifying potential solutions for the environment through education, scientific research, plant conservation and public participation.

Objectives:

The Botanical Gardens is being envisioned as the platform by which the research, education and awareness goals can be achieved. It is designed to provide the following:

• a laboratory for scientific research
• a garden for plant conservation
• a means of increasing public awareness, education and appreciation
• a venue for public recreation

It will be of world-class quality, among the top in the world. It is the goal of the project to be recognised and accredited by various international botanical and environmental associations.
