Beyond Buzzwords: Transforming Philippine Agriculture!

MOU Signing: DA Urban Agriculture Project

Author: DA Communications Group | 7 April 2020

Agriculture Secretary William Dar and Muntinlupa City Mayor Jaime Fresnedi signed the first Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the establishment of community gardens under the Department of Agriculture’s (DA) Urban Agriculture Project on April 7, 2020.

The Urban Agriculture Project is part of DA’s “Plant, Plant, Plant Program” that aims to secure food for urban families, especially during the enhanced community quarantine period.

Based on the MOU, the DA commits to provide initial inputs such as seeds, seedlings, soil, and compost and give technical assistance in establishing urban gardens. The local government’s counterpart is to provide the required area for the establishment of the gardens and ensure the sustainability of the project. (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
