"WE HAVE BEEN TO EDEN ON EARTH"
And if you are nice to Mother Nature I may just tell you Where it is in Davao City
That were the exact words I've read on the souvenir shirt being sold at EDEN Nature Park & Resort's Souvenir Shop.
And.....It is indeed Eden on Earth for, and remember when I said I want to bring my friends to the best of Mindanao, it is one of Mindanao's pride.
This 80 hectares property is located 3,000 feet above sea level, and the best thing about the resort is that, it is 95% man-made.????????
Yes, the property is was a logged over area covered with wild grass, when it was discovered by its owners sometimes in 1971. It is a perfect example that we can re-create and rebuild mother nature, if we wanted to.

Now let me share to you our Eden found in Davao City.
It was raining when we arrived, but the wanderlust bug can sometimes be so powerful, that no amount of rain can stop it.
|It was raining and we're waiting for lunch at the Garden Cafe.....what to do Jenny dear? chase the peahen maybe......|
For Php 470.00, I say it's worth it when you get to savor freshly picked greens, vegetables and fruits.
|Our Lunch......Love those greens.....|
GUIDED SHUTTLE TOUR
|Ready for the Shuttle Tour|
It's Php 120.00 per person, it is a first come first served basis, so better come early and booked ahead. Good thing that we arrived quite early for lunch, so we were able to reserved for their 1 PM scheduled tour. ( I'll bombard this post with photographs)
