The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) here has put up a seedling booth dubbed as “Community PLANTREE” in front of its regional office in support of the International Earth Day 2021 celebration on Thursday and on Friday.
Some 380 seedlings of Kasoy, Avocado, Sampaloc Duhat, Mangga, Rambutan, Guyabano, Bignai, Narra, Fire Tree, Molave and Bitaog were given free to residents of nearby community in Pampanga to promote urban greening and environmental stability, and address issue of food security amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
The project is inspired by the famous “community pantry” movement all over the country where people are allowed to donate and get food for free. (-30-)
