On the sides of the marble one can read the names of those persons who have contributed towards Agriculture in Mauritius and also for the Garden.
 
Old Sugar Mill Model
This Old Sugar Mill Model has been built by the Mauritius Chamber of Agriculture in 1953. It is a replica of early sugar mills with vertical cylinders drawn by oxen. The cane juice accumulated in a pond and led into a set of five caudrons, two of which served to filter off foreign bodies. The juice was then cooked to the consistency of caramel. After setting in a wooden tray it was shaped into wooden moulds. This Old Sugar Mill Model satisfied the needs of its time.
