KANANGA, Leyte –“Daghan kaayo kong nakat-unan bahin sa pagtanom ug utanon, ug nakat-on san ko kung unsaon pag-apply sa abono ug kung unsaon ang pagsulbad sa sakit sa tanom”, quips Ms. Rubilyn Arriesgado.

Changes in the training set-up began since quarantine protocols were issued within the region. This led to maximizing the resource of our community partners, in the same way that backyard gardening was strengthened to increase household’s food productivity.

Ms. Arriesgado add, “Nagapapasalamat ako kay usa ang among Barangay nga napili as pilot ani nga training. Daghan salamat sab sa among punong barangay, nga nagfacilitate ani nga training, kauban nila Sir Ed Buagrin ug ni Ma’am Virginia Perales. Unta daghan pang mga training nga muabot dire sa among barangay. Daghan salamat pud sa ATI-RTC 8, labi na ni Ma’am Conie Miro kay tungod niya naa tay training nga naconduct dire sa atua. Hinaot nga magamit jud nato ang atong mga nakat-onan ani nga training.”

Extension support to the trainees such as starter kits were also provided to motivate them in enhancing their gardens right after the training. The urban gardening practices will not limit those who have little backyard space to invest their time to produce vegetables while staying at home is highly encouraged in the country.

Another participant, Mr. Richard Cuesta, shares “Dako ni nga tabang nga training para sa atuang pamilya labi na sa pagproduce ug mga utanon nga dili mugamit ug kemikal”.

The training also highlights the practice of reducing waste through recycling, planting food in this ready to use materials, and eventually growing produce in every household.

A total of 48 participants joined the Training in Vegetable Production with extension support (Urban Gardening), in coordination with Kananga Farmer’s Association, on June 9 -11, 2020 at Tagaytay, Kananga, Leyte.
