Grow Vegetables in Your Backyard!

Grow Vegetables in Your Backyard!

To ensure food availability and sustain production amidst the threat of COVID-19, the Municipal Agriculture Office of Bongabon is intensifying the promotion of urban agriculture through the distribution of free vegetable seeds such as eggplant, ampalaya or bitter gourd, mustard and pechay or snow cabbage.

Urban dwellers or residents are encouraged to cultivate fresh produce in their own backyards. The pandemic quarantine has taught all of us the value of food security, and growing your own helps mitigate any shortage, albeit temporarily.

LGU-Bongabon, thru the Municipal Agriculture Office, spearheaded by Mr. Jayson Leonardo, encourages the public to join in promoting the urban agriculture program to bridge supply gaps and minimize dependencies on commercial sources
