CALAMABA CITY, Laguna, june 23 (PIA)--The Los Baños-based Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) and the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Plant Industry (DA-BPI) have formalized their partnership in establishing gardens under the DA-BPI Urban Agriculture Program in an agreement signed on 22 June 2020 at the DA Main Office in Quezon City. Signatories to the memorandum of agreement are Agriculture Secretary William D. Dar and SEARCA Director Glenn B. Gregorio.

The DA-BPI is leading the implementation of the Urban Agriculture Program “as one of the modalities that renders safe food available, accessible, and affordable while providing additional income to households and communities in urban areas.”

“During this pandemic, we have to really secure every space and see to it that we turn this challenge into an opportunity for agriculture and food,” Dar said.

“I would like to thank SEARCA under the leadership of Glenn Gregorio for this opportunity to partner with them in promoting and pursuing urban agriculture in a big way” Dar said during the signing rites.

Gregorio said SEARCA sees the importance of promoting urban agriculture to improve the stability of food supply, alleviate poverty, foster social integration among communities, and protect the environment through innovative and eco-friendly gardening methods.

He said “because of the pandemic, people realized the importance and the source of our food or the food system and start to appreciate how fragile it is and how important food security is.”

“With this partnership, I think we will all the more link the academe, the industry and the government. With these three linked together, I think we will have a more sustainable implementation of the urban agriculture program. I think we can have a big impact at the community and the city level,” Gregorio said.

In a policy paper it released this month, SEARCA identified ways to influence the adoption of urban agriculture. Among these is the need for a massive intervention for wide understanding of urban agriculture and the need to reignite the Filipinos’ love of planting and growing their own food to pave the way to more adoption. SEARCA’s recommendations will be addressed through this project wherein DA-BPI encourages crop production and community gardening using various technologies in households, barangays, schools, and public offices.

The SEARCA policy paper also indicated the need for the implementation of urban agriculture to be easy to follow, require less inputs, and customized depending on the conditions in the garden site.

The DA-BPI has allocated funds for the provision of starter kits that include agricultural inputs and any needed technical assistance for the individual or household beneficiary. It also provides funds for the setting up or enhancement of barangay, community, school or university, and public office gardens, including the gardens that SEARCA will establish under the new partnership with DA-BPI.

“With this project with DA-BPI, SEARCA is walking its talk to help show the big potential of urban agriculture to sustain urban families with their needed food both in terms of quantity and quality, especially in times of food disruption brought about by COVID-19, climate hazards, and natural disasters,” Gregorio said.

Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.

Isang Pasasalamat

Sabi nila: “There’s always something to be thankful for.” Kaya ako din may sasabihin! 🤣✌️ Isang pasasalamat! 💗 Sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa akin, maraming salamat po. Sa mga pagtulong sa akin, kahit hindi ko sinasabi, pero ginagawa pa rin, Thank you. Hindi ko man nasasabi personally pero taos puso ang pasasalamat ko sa inyo. Alam kong alam niyo na kung sino kayo. Isa na lang mahihiling ko talaga, ang mapanatili ang genuine and lasting friendship na nabuo natin. 💗 Kung may nasaktan o na-offend ako dahil sa mga paniniwala o pangbubully ko. Humihingi ako ng paumanhin. Kung isa ka sa ma-ooffend ko pa lang. Humihingi na ako agad ng paumanhin. Dahil din sa inyo, may natutunan at matututunan ako. Kung isa ka sa mga nagsasabing suplado ako, pasensiya na. Nagkakamali po kayo. =) Sa mga napasaya ko kahit paano, maraming salamat. Kayo ang magiging inspirasyon ko na ipagpatuloy ang paglaban ng taas noo at ngiting tagos hanggang puso sa darating pang mga taon. Sa mga nakakamiss sa akin,
