The Department of Agriculture through the Bureau of Plant Industry (DA-BPI), launched the Green Revolution 2.0: Plants for Bountiful Barangays Movement (Luntiang Ani ng Mamamayan) on October 26 at Rizal Park in Luneta, Manila.

The Green Revolution 2.0 is an initiative of the Department, which seeks to improve the nutrition of Filipinos by increasing production and supply of fresh fruits and vegetables in the urban, peri-urban, and rural areas. It aims to turn communities into patches of green edible landscapes through the establishment of vegetable gardens.

It aims to encourage every Filipino to plant vegetable in their homes to help to ease the burden of the country’s food system and supply chain.

Senior Undersecretary Domingo F. Panganiban graced the kick-off ceremony, which was also attended by other DA and BPI officials headed by BPI OIC-Director Gerald Glenn F. Panganiban, representatives of the local government units of Metro Manila and other government agencies.
