Pangasinan PESO Supports Sustainable Vegetable Gardening

Employees and personnel of Pangasinan PESO launches vegetable gardening in support to the Green Canopy Project of the Provincial Government of Pangasinan.

The PESO Manager, Ms. Ma. Richelle M. Raguindin, lead the awarding of seedlings to the employees last June 14, 2023 at the Pangasinan PESO Capitol Complex, Lingayen, Pangasinan. The seedlings planted were composed of various vegetables such as tomatoes, eggplant, chili pepper (sili), and lady’s finger (okra).

To foster team work and improve camaraderie on the office, the employees were divided into six groups with five members each. The groups were able to express their wit and humor by formulating their identifiable team names such as Team-Malker, and Team-Mobong. The said activity is guided by certain criteria wherein groups are highly encouraged to be creative on their gardening set-up but at the same time grow all their seedlings until it produces their fruits. The group with most sustainable and high-quality crops will earn awards and incentives which will be given at the end of the year.

The Green Canopy Project is one of the vital projects the Provincial Government of Pangasinan in advocating green community which primarily aims to help combat the effects of climate change and global warming.
