On July 2, 2021, the DA, through Undersecretary for High Value Crops and Rural Credit Evelyn G. Laviña Rosario, signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with LGU of Rosario through Cavite Mayor Jose Voltaire V. Ricafrente III, for the establishment of communal gardens in the municipality. Aside from ensuring food accessibility and availability, the project also highlighted the role of women in the community as it involves the wives of fishermen.

As initial assistance, containerized gardening and hydroponics set-up were provided and training will also be conducted to capacitate the beneficiaries.

The project, which forms part of the DA’s Urban Agriculture and Plant Plant Plant Programs, aims to establish vegetable production areas in pockets of available lands and to diversify the source of livelihood of people in urban communities. (Photo by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
