Dubbed as “Ahon Lahat, Pagkaing Sapat Kontra Covid – 19 (ALPAS COVID -19)”, it created awareness on food security among urban households and promoted healthy diet by making nutritious food readily available. More so, it encouraged community sharing during harvest or provided additional income for those with big enough space that can produced enough vegetables for selling.
An online “Training on Urban Vegetable Gardening” was conducted last October 23, 2020 by DA-BPI. On November 6, the DA – BPI team headed by Mr. Ernie Lito Bolloso, BPI Training Team Assist Leader for the Urban Agriculture Program visited in the “Urban Gulayan” project areas located at the TSPI Head Office, Corporate Center and Taguig Branch. During the visit, employees and members learned the appropriate crop and planting techniques based on the size and set-up of the vegetable planting areas. Vegetable seedlings, e.g. pepper, mustard and squash were distributed by DA – BPI.
