Congratulations to the JPT Ediscape Team for successfully implementing the Year 3 of JPT Ediscape Program. Special commendations go to the Office of the City Agriculturist, headed by Mr. Inigo D. Garingalao, with Jonifer Frades of DA Region 6, Hennesey L. Gasataya of DILG Region 6, EA Bryant Nene Zulueta, and Andre Iguidez of Iloilo Garden Club for their roles as judges.
I am especially grateful to my wife, Rosalie, who served as a validator in this program. Her unwavering support in this program and dedication in serving the Ilonggos has made a significant impact in improving our community.
As the father of the city, I am delighted to see that we are still relentless in pursuing our efforts to preserve our environment and mobilize sustainable programs in our beloved city. It’s great to see the program’s positive impact, promoting food security, combating malnutrition, transforming slum areas into productive spaces, creating green spaces, beautifying the community, reducing plastic waste, and improving the local’s mental and physical health.
Hence, in this year’s program validation, we aim to encourage all Ilonggos to participate. This is how we should work together for the betterment of our community.
The 10 barangays that participated in the container gardening category – Brgy. Luna, Lapaz; Brgy. CC EL 98, Jaro; Brgy. Calubihan, Jaro; Brgy. Bolilao, Jaro; Brgy. San Rafael, Mandurriao; Brgy. Hibao an Sur, Mandurriao; Brgy. Tanza Esperanza, City Proper; Brgy. Monica, City Proper; Infante, Molo; and East Baluarte, Molo – deserve praise for their efforts.
