Growing up with Sesame Street, we have undoubtedly learned quite a number of things from muppets besides numbers and letters. In a relevant 2010 feature, Love the Earth, Elmo, Zoe, and Baby Bear venture into Bear National Park with Papa Bear in search of the elusive Blue-Feathered Swallowing Swallow so they can earn their Bird-Watching Badges. While looking for the swallow, they have fun discovering beautiful things in nature and learn that there are some simple things they can do to keep nature beautiful and clean: putting trash where it belongs, recycling, reusing things and saving water.

South Forbes Golf City, being the country’s largest fully-integrated and all-themed golf resort city at the forefront of the Metro Sta. Rosa – Tagaytay corridor, makes it a point to preserve nature while creating a living environment for people. This symbiosis between nature and man is the guiding principle in the development of the built environment and the hallmark of a “whole-world-in-one” city that has made it the recipient of the Best Golf Community Development by the 2007 CNBC International Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious property awards programme, and the Highly Commended Award for Best Development by the 2010 Bloomberg Asia-Pacific Residential Award.

Mine. Learning about the environment and how to take care of it begins at home. In an enclave like Châteaux de Paris, where themed gardens are the main feature, every homeowner is encouraged to cultivate his own private garden, one that not only reflects the passion of the community but also reveals the character of the family through choice plants and some hardscape accents. This way, the whole village will have a larger percentage of green space over built structures, keeping the temperature lower.

And of course, the enclave’s model chateaus are not only comfortably liveable, these are also very pleasing to the eyes that it does not grab attention from the feature garden, much like how it is in the French capital. You can choose from the classic Chambord, the contemporary Chantilly, the modern Fontainebleau and a few more which suits the many lifestyles of people.

Now, who would not learn to love nature with these inspiring environmentally-sensitive features right where you live. Move in right here, right now. Call 635-7777 or 631-8855 for a free city tour or log on to www.southforbes.com for more information
