Philippines: ‘Vegetable garden city’ eyed in Tondo

The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is set to convert a one-and-a-half-hectare idle lot in Tondo, Manila into a “vegetable garden city” for the benefit of residents in surrounding villages.

DAR Secretary John Castriciones said the lot is located at St. John Bosco Parish Church and its parish priest, Fr. Gaudencio Carandang, has given his approval for the project.

He added that the harvested vegetables would be distributed among the participating barangays’ residents.
