Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia and John Castriciones, secretary of the Department of Agrarian Reform, visited the 1.4-hectare “Buhay sa Gulay” project site in Barangay Alangilan recently.

The project aims to promote the importance of high-value farming among Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) to also encourage them to have an alternative source of income by growing and selling fresh vegetables.

The project is in collaboration with the City Department of Agriculture and the Benez Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Farmers Association.

Leonardia said agriculture is important, and more so during this pandemic.

He thanked the DAR chief for his support to the program and expressed his commitment that the local government will help make it flourish.

Also joining them in Alangilan were DAR Undersecretary Ranibai Dilangalen, Assistant Secretary Ubaldo Sadiarin Jr., Regional Director Sheila Enciso, Director Romeo Reyes,  Jayzon Callado, PARO Reuben Theodore Sindac, Councilor Carl Lopez, City Agriculturist Goldwyn Nifras, and executive assistant George Zulueta.*
