The City Agriculturist’s Office (CAO) has awarded on Monday some schools and barangays for being the top achievers in their Gulayan sa Eskwelahan (GSE) and Gulayan sa Barangay (GSB) programs.
CAO officer-in-charge Leo Brian Leuterio said 93 barangays participated in the
Gulayan sa Barangay, and another 50 participants for the Gulayan sa Eskwelahan.
Gulayan sa Barangay is a program implemented by CAO as part of introducing organic urban gardening to Davaoeños even with the limited space in their households as it allowed them to grow vegetables and other backyard crops.
Gulayan sa Paaralan, meanwhile, has been implemented city-wide and the program is under the DA’s High-Value Crops Development Program (HVCDP), which aims to serve as an instrument of raising awareness in combating malnutrition among school children and the local communities within.
The Gulayan sa Barangay participants were evaluated by CAO’s agency partners and other private industries such as the Vegetable Industry Council of Southern Mindanao (VICSMIN), while the Gulayan sa Eskwelahan had been evaluated by personnel from the Department of Education (DepEd) XI.
The winners took home cash prices ranging from P20,000 to 50,000. Consolation prizes meanwhile, amounting to P5,000 were given to those other participants who were not able to win the first three places.
