Among the planting materials given were; 50 seedlings of cacao, 25 seedlings of durian, 25 lanzones, 25 mangosteen, cassava cuttings and 200 pcs. of vegetable seeds.
Orbe said that it is important to practice organic farming to ensure fresh, safe and nutritious vegetables that can be harvested just right in the backyard of the schools.
“This is our commitment to CNAHS and it is one way of encouraging the students to plant assorted fruit and vegetables in vacant spaces around their school,” she said.
She also added that more planting materials will still be given to the school.
Meanwhile, CNAHS principal Portia Burgos thanked the agriculture for the support rendered to their institution.
She also assured that they will take good care of the planting materials given by DA.
“The planting materials given to CNAHS could help us to produce value-laden individuals equipped with academic and technical know-how for lifelong livelihood,” Burgos said.
The CNAHS is a Technical Vocational institution with adequately trained agricultural technologists.(Aggie Media Service)
