Agri-10 boosts urban agri thru seeds, garden tools provision

NUNUNGAN, Lanao del Norte (PIA)-- To promote the production and consumption of vegetables, as well as address malnutrition, the Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office (DA-RFO)-10 handed over vegetable seeds and garden tools to the Musibay Integrated School (MIS) at the agency compound here on January 12.

On behalf of DA-10 Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado, Mindanao Inclusive Agriculture Development Project Deputy Director Joel S. Rudinas, and Senior Agriculturist Richan D. Lacanaria of the Field Operations Division, they turned over assorted (Pinakbet) vegetable seeds and garden tools, such as a light hoe, plastic seedling tray, shovel, sprinkler, and weeding bolo, to Onilyn M. Patad, a farm worker of the local government unit of Nunungan.

Patad said the provisions will aid in the implementation of MIS's Gulayan sa Paaralan Program, which will engage students in gardening. Eventually, it will also grant them easier access to fresh and quality produce, essential for maintaining a healthy diet. (DA-10/LELA/PIA-10/Lanao del Norte)
