DA says Dairy Farm not for city waste station

Baguio is without a transfer area for its wastes once again.
Just as the city is expecting the influx of visitors to witness the highlights of the Panagbenga, the Legal Service department of the Department of Agriculture said the area is not intended to be a waste transfer station.


BAGUIO STRAWBERRY FARM -- A vast tract of land at Barangay Sto. Tomas Proper, some 10-minute drive away from the central business district, which is planted with San Andreas strawberry variety from the United States that can be grown whole year-round, is being projected by the city government as an agro and eco-tourism site. Here, visitor Lalaine Payay presents the freshly harvested and bigger strawberries during the pre-launching of the site last week.

In time for the biggest events of the Panagbenga next week, a group of farmers at Sitio Bilis in Barangay Sto. Tomas Central in this mountain resort is opening their farms for the first time to tourists.
