The Botanical Garden at CAbC is a place where botanical diversity is seen at its best! The garden is set in about 10 ha of land, and has 10 major zones and 6 minor components that are under development with diverse representative species of tropical flora (see table below). All these components are in continuous growth. Differing from the conventional concept of Botanical Gardens, MSSBG gives equal priority to wild, natural and cultivated traditional and horticultural species and varieties of plants. The Garden pays special attention to conservation of Rare, Endemic and Threatened (RET) species of southern Western Ghats.
To serve the community as a resource and advocate for botanical and agricultural biodiversity of the Western Ghats and inspire an ethic of conservation
To generate awareness that we live on this planet as guests of green plants who alone can convert sunlight into green food
