Update: Jan 19, 2018
If you visit Da Lat, you should not miss the chance to enjoy natural drinks while taking a tour on clean farming at Green Box cafe.

The green entrance of the cafe

Da Lat is known as a city that is leading the country in producing safe vegetables and fruits with advanced technology. Green Box cafe is promoting clean farming in this central highlands city.

Visiting Green Box, visitors can enjoy fresh and clean fruit juices while exploring the process of producing clean farm products.

Green Box is designed like a greenhouse, a typical model for growing vegetables and flowers in Da Lat.

The green space of the cafe is divided into different sections for drinking, shopping, plant growing, farm produce processing and farming tool display.

Pumpkins are displayed in the drinking section

The space for drinking impresses visitors with its delicate decorations. On each coffee table is a vase of flowers or vegetables grown at the farm behind the cafe.

The hydroponics section draws major attention of visitors for its beautiful green vegetables and colourful fruits. Visitors will be told by Tran Huy Duong, the owner of Green Box, how the farm products are grown and produced here. They can also harvest vegetables themselves or enjoy fresh red strawberries at the farm. If visitors wish to learn how to grow vegetables themselves, they will get useful advice from Duong.

In the shopping section, visitors can buy all Da Lat specialties, including wine, artichoke tea, dried persimmon and fruit juices.  Next to the shopping area is the processing section where visitors can select fresh and safe fruits and make juice themselves.

Visitors can learn about hi-tech farming at Green Box

Tran Huy Duong said the idea of designing Green Box as a greenhouse came after he visited models of green agriculture tourism in Malaysia and Japan.

Based on hi-tech farming conditions in Da Lat and visitors’ needs, Green Box was launched and has attracted a good number of customers and visitors.

The cafe became a popular destination during the 2017 Da Lat Flower Festival. It is also a favourite place for students majoring in agriculture and bio-technology to visit to study and practice.
