DA turns over P10-M veggie products to Sorsogon diocese

Sorsogon City (13 May) -- The Department of Agriculture (DA) Bicol regional office has turned over P10- million worth of Greenhouse Vegetable Gardening Project located at the home for the clergy, this city.

The 17 sets of greenhouses project, envisioned to help augment income potential of farmers and employ greenhouse and organic farming technologies, are a partnership of the Department of Agriculture, through its High Value Commercial Crops (DA-HVCC) Program and its attached government-owned National AgriBusiness Corp. (NABCOR) and the Sorsogon Social Action Foundation, Inc. (SSAFI).

The project involves 17 greenhouses at the Home for the Clergy site. They are being managed by the Diocese of Sorsogon through its social apostolate arm, the SSAFI.

According to Bishop of Sorsogon Arturo Bastes, the production and income from the project would be shared with the selected 20 landless farmer-beneficiaries.

"This project is a manifestation of an effective partnership and cooperation between the state and the church", Bastes said.

Former Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap, who is running unopposed for congressman in the province of Bohol, said that during his term in the DA, he had approved at least 10 similar projects in 10 dioceses in the entire country.

"Through this project, landless farmer-beneficiaries will be trained with appropriate production management practices, integrated pest management, effective use of micro-organisms, vermiculture and greenhouse maintenance", he said. (PNA Bicol/PIA) [top]
