Laying out in about 2 hectares of land that Tony devotes to his passion.
You will discover with the help of a descriptive book the botanic garden which wants, not only to be highly scientific even though the species are repertorial in their vernacular name and scientific name, but it consists, also, on making you understand how much the Malagasy culture is linked to its nature; how these endemic plants are often used in daily life; not only for their pharmaceutical admirable value but also, for their social value: the “vory” will be planted in the center of the village to make it prosperous, the “matembolo”, a tree which protects life even preserves you if you must be judged, it insures you to the clemency of the judge the “Tsihita fototra”, of course it is the fruit of a continuous research beside the old people in the society, the medicine-men ( mpisikidy) who still know their works...
This botanic garden is also the opposite course in front of this beloved nature but sometimes it is fallen out by the bush – fire.
It assures the protection of some animal species.
The chameleons and their wedding paradise to escape from the couccal (toloho)
The king’s birds called “Arongo” knowing how to imitate call.The songs of those congeners, bring it in profit to plunder all the rests, that of the kingfisher in its metal colored feathers, of the vivid orange colored pretty partridge but also the nocturnal microceb little lemurs hiding in the Kalalo ( a palm – tree from which the palm wine is extracted). The non-venomous snakes fed by the ants, the lizards of the washing tube during their laying.
All these animals are there, in our garden, we invite you to take them in pictures.
WE SUGGEST YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PLANTING OF THE MALAGASY SOUTH WEST'S EMBLEM “THE BAOBAB” FROM THE SEED THAT WE CONSERVE AND WE INVITE YOU TO WRITE YOUR NAME ON IT BEARING WITNESS IN YOUR PASSING THROUGH OUR REGION.
