The Bataan Peninsula State University (BPSU) and Samal local government unit signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) to promote organic backyard farming.
BPSU Vice President for Research, Extension, and Training Services Dr. Hermogenes Paguia and a Samal official signed the agreement document in a simple ceremony last week.
He said the agreement with Samal LGU is a university extension project titled “Organic Bio-Intensive Gardening”. The MOA signing activity immediately followed the conduct of the one-day training for composting using composting fungus activator (CFA) attended by 25 Brgy. Palili residents.
The training was conducted under the BPSU Abucay Campus Extension and Training Services Office (ETSO) headed by its Chairperson, Dr. Rina Paguia. She said the training aimed to equip household participants with detailed knowledge on backyard composting using CFA. BPSU President Dr. Greg
Rodis has been urging Bataan folks to do backyard vegetable farming as source of foods in this time of COVID-19 pandemic.
