Author: DA Communications Group | 20 December 2021

Agriculture Secretary William Dar together with DA officials, led the ribbon-cutting ceremony and ceremonial turnover of “Hardin ng Kalusugan at Pagkain”, an initiative under its Edible Landscaping (EL) project of the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) on December 20, 2021 at DA Central Office in Quezon City.

The project, funded by the DA-Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR), under the Plant, Plant, Plant program, aims to promote EL in urban communities as additional source of available, fresh, and nutritious food.

It supports the efforts of the Department to establish food-resilient community amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, and promotes urban farming by incorporating various available technologies such as organic farming, vertical farming, hydroponics, and horticulture. (Photo by Adones Buhayan, DA-AFID)
