  • by

LEGAZPI CITY — The Department of Agriculture (DA) regional office here launched the Gulayan sa Paaralan Program (GPP) in Sorsogon City to promote vegetable production in public elementary and secondary schools and signal the nationwide re-launch of this joint undertaking between the DA and Department of Education (DepEd).

Emily Bordado, DA regional spokesperson, said the participating schools will establish school gardens as ready food baskets or source of vegetables of the feeding program for malnourished or undernourished pupils.

“The DA will spearhead the implementation of the program and provide the production inputs such as seeds, organic fertilizers and garden tools and facilitate the conduct of trainings. The excess vegetables harvested could be sold by the school to generate income for the sustenance of the project,” she said in a phone interview on Thursday.
