Lingayen Mayor Leopoldo Bataoil has successfully grown vegetables alongside ornamental plants in their town plaza.
The politiko was so happy to show off his green feat on Thursday, June 25, as he pushed the people of Lingayen to also plant their own food in their respective backyards.
“Look, our town plaza now blooming with vegetables integrated with ornamental plants. A showcase of landscaped farming for beautification and food production combined,” Bataoil said.
The mayor said it is currently the best time for people to try out gardening when children are mostly at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Let’s do it, Lingayen! While the children are at home, kaya natin ‘to,
gulayan sa bakuran,'” said Bataoil.
