This is actually the GuangZhou Vegetable Demonstration Garden. We (SWMBO and me) took Metro Line 2 to the terminus at JiaHeWangGang (also on Line 3). We exited via entrance A and turned left and walked about 50 metres to the main road. We crossed the road, turned left and walked about 200 metres along the road to the 509 bus stop. SWMBO asked the driver to give us a shout when we were at the garden, this he duly did. Good man! The park is about 50 metres before the bus stop in the middle of a parade of ‘shops’. Look for the ‘GuangZhou Vegetable Demonstration Garden’ sign. The ticket office is on the right, 10Yuan for SWMBO but I flashed my UK driving licence and being an OAP got in for nothing! For 10 Yuan I didn’t expect much so I wasn’t disappointed. On the right after the entrance are a couple of large plastic sheeted ‘green’ houses that give a clue to what might be. Nice paths and stuff growing. I’ve no idea what was growing as all the signs are in Chinese but with the plants Latin name. SWMBO got excited about some vegetables as she’d never seen them before. I got excited about the John Deere bench which I reckoned would be perfect on our patio in the UK. The rest of the site is a few commercial ‘green’ houses, some with stuff growing that you could enter, others with stuff growing that were padlocked and others where there was nothing. All very run down. There’s a nice avenue of old mango trees, the fruit just falls on to the ground where the local wildlife devours it. The trees must have been there for years, so what was there before would be rather interesting to discover. For the children there’s a rather nice playground as long as they aren’t concussed by a falling mango. The garden has plenty of room for development but somehow it seems to have lost direction. It’s also a vocational training school so I suspect that where it gets its income as there were very few visitors even during the week after New Year. We got back to the metro station on the 739 bus which after a roundabout route terminates there. The bus stop is across the road and about 100 metres before the garden. SWMBO has decided that once was enough!

Vegetable garden goes to seed...
We recently took a trip out to this garden after spotting it on the map. Hoped to see and learn about how many Chinese vegetables are grown, but sadly the park is not well maintained and has seen better days. Many of the greenhouses had nothing growing, or very dried out plants with no vegetables to see. The only three things we really saw growing were yellow peppers, cucumbers and some kale. This is a real shame as visiting the local markets or countryside there is an amazing abundance of produce. Can only recommend if you want quiet escape from the city, as no one else was there. Also there is a restaurant of sorts on the grounds but no one was really eating there, so we did not try...
