2019 Nong Nooch Cycad Horticulture Workshop

The 600-acre Nong Nooch Tropical Garden that lies some 160 km southeast of Bangkok in Thailand, is one of the world’s largest privately-owned gardens. The land was originally purchased to grow mango and other fruits for Mr. Pisit and Mrs. Nongnooch Tansacha. The Garden formally opened to the public in 1980, and the orchard was transformed into themed sub-gardens. Nong Nooch has evolved through the years, and under the guidance of Mr. Kampon Tansacha, the Garden, dedicated to preservation, research and conservation, has now taken on another primary goal of education for generations to come. For those of you that attended the 2002 International Cycad Biology conference and/or The Nong Nooch Cycad Horticulture workshop 2016, the garden has grown and changed a lot. Now comprised six gardens displaying the artistry of landscaping, palm collections, floral and theme-based gardens. An aerial walkway over one kilometer long has been established over part of the collection for canopy viewing, and several more venues have been developed including one of the world’s most extensive collections of cycads. Transformation has included non-plant related venues with a outdoor area with full size dinosaurs with over 100 species represented and a brand new Cacti display garden and other exhibits that have been added.
