    Do not go to any other Spice Garden - this is best and must visit place
    Hats off to owner Mr. Beni sir. who is doing program not for his personal benefit but to promote agriculture for benefit of future generation. The place is bigger and does not only have spice plantation but all kind of agriculture production including fruits, vegetables and glimpse of fish farming etc. Sir not only explains the importance of each plant but also gives information about its history (from where it came) and why we need to preserve it. He also refers to ancient Indian culture to worship plants through some rituals and the real reason behind it. In 1 hour program he gave so much information about plants and collaborative agriculture that while leaving we might not remembered that all.. but left with our heart filled with grace. I personally feel if person like Mr. Beni becomes agriculture minister, the economy of India will boost.

    Benny is knowledgeable and passionate about farming, Ayurveda, and sustainability
    Benny has 5 generations of knowledge in countless categories from farming, agriculture, Ayurveda, sustainably, and building and it clearly shows. We were guests in one of his treehouse rooms and it was a great experience. We found the room on Airbnb and honestly thought it was just a hotel room but it was more guesthouse experience and we were welcomed into the family. His wife cooked delicious Keralan breakfast for us and they made sure to check with any preferences. They will allow as much privacy or immersion as you’d like. The room was clean and hot bucket shower with a nice balcony area for sitting. There was also a tour of his property which his knowledge and passion is clearly obvious and he’ll take time for any question. He likes to engage in conversations on sustainability also so he not only cares about his own business, but a better world for his children.

    Best Spice Garden we've visited
    We've been to several spice gardens in SAARC countries and this one is the best. The owner Benny gives a great 1 hour tour, giving lots of interesting information about the spices, their medicinal qualities, the different species etc. His farm is also fully sustainable, producing its own oil (coconut), natural gas, and animal protein (goats, chickens). We had a thoroughly enjoyable visit.

So many spice places but chose Green Park from the reviews. We just turned up at 4.30 not knowing what to expect. Beni greeted us & after a little friendly chat mentioned he charges 100 rupees pp for his tour.
Took my husband & 22 year old son who have absolutely no interest in spices/natural remedies/cooking or plants. Both were very interested & impressed by Beni, his passion & his knowledge. Tasting the different fruits & the effect they had on each other once eaten was amazing. We passed his little shop on his tour (which we were not pushed into at all) I have no idea how his prices compare but he has a very friendly team working with him. I rarely purchase but I bought THE most delicious chocolate we have ever tasted & 2 vanilla pods! An interesting and thought provoking hour or so. Thank you

The Spice garden was an excellent place to visit.We came out better informed about spices and various unique plants.We were very disappointment with the spice store inside the garden. The prices were very exorbitant than regular market price .You can buy organic spices from reputed companies for much less cost.Stay away !!!
I think Mr Benny and Mr Thaju should look into it.

Great place - learnt a lot about spices from a captivating guide.

He was very knowledgeable about the spices being grown

The shop at the end had great stock as well as well as some delicious free samples of cashews with dried sweets - which were so good that we couldn't resist buying some!

Walked from Kumily and arrived just in time to join a group tour. Excellent tour around the garden and exciting walk on the suspension bridge to finish. Very comprehensive information delivered with passion. The spice shop is a great place to stock up too.

We did a deep review of all the spice farms in the Thekkady area and this one by far beat the rest - and I'm not joking! It is not commercially oriented like the others and Beni (the guide and owner) was friendly, knowledgable, and patient. He took us on a detailed tour of the grounds where we sampled many of the spices and nectars straight from the plants. We had the opportunity to buy some of their excellent produce and talk about their sustainability goals. Everyone there is friendly and happy. We're glad we took the time to visit and wish them all well.
