The Ecological Park of the College of Agriculture (CAg) is not only for instructional purposes but also for agritourism.

Three of the many components of the park are: Entrepreneur Laboratory Center, Ornamental Nursery, and Micro-plot Demo area. These were completed after the Eco Park had its soft launching last year during the CAg Foundation Day. The other park components which are all expected to strengthen instruction and the university's agritourism showcases are the Bayan-Anihan Model Plot, Industrial Crop Demo Area, Butterly Farm, Vermi-Tea Brewer Demo Area with Vermicomposting and Organic Vegetables, Rock Garden, Conventional Composting Demo Area, Weed Garden, Rain Forestation, Expanded Organic Fertilizer Production, Apiculture and Sericulture Projects, and the Bahay-Kubo Garden. The latter is one of the frequented projects on campus by visitors on lakbay-aral to CLSU. Other portions of the fishpond area are jointly managed with a private lessor. When fully developed, these maybe offered for fishing, Dr. Perez added.

The dean also said that the other components of the park are now simultaneously being completed. He emphasized that the college is vigorously pursuing the enhancement of the various projects as these are necessary in the delivery of quality education to students. Meanwhile, Mr. Pablo J. Rafael, Jr., chair of the Department of Agri-Management, said that the Entrepreneur Laboratory Center will soon be a Wi-Fi zone so students can access the worldwide web and facilitate their acquisition of information very valuable for their studies.

Nine students of the College of Agriculture (CAg) will be the first recipients of a Certificate in Agricultural Science under the new BS Agriculture program which started implementation in School Year 2009-2010.
