Cagayan de Oro City, May 29 – Two religious groups obtained vegetable seeds from DA-Regional Field Office 10 (DA-10), in support to the department’s urban gardening program.
Both the churches of Golden City Alliance Fellowship (GCAF) and the Team Jesus Outreach received the assorted vegetable seeds (ampalaya, eggplant, okra and pechay) from DA- 10, thru Regional Technical Director for Operations Carlota S. Madriaga.
On behalf of DA-10 OIC-Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado, RTD Madriaga urged the representatives of both churches to use recycled materials such as plastic bottles and other indigenous materials that can still be utilized for gardening.
GCAF Youth Minister Faith Ann Rañises, receiving the 50 packets of veggie seeds said, it will be divided among its youth members to encourage them to venture into gardening while staying home during the quarantine period.
Meanwhile, Team Jesus Senior Pastor Elma O. Cañas will also distribute the seeds to its select members. She said, they will have an urban gardening contest using recycled and indigenous materials.
With this, the creativity and ingenuity of its members in urban gardening will be showcased.# (EMB)
