Agri fair set at Igorot Garden
by PIO release

Organic agriculture practitioners will have the chance to display their products to the public during the upcoming annual agricultural fair at the Igorot Garden May 15 to 31.

Councilor Leandro B. Yangot, Jr., chair of the city council committee on market, trade, commerce, and agriculture, said the annual conduct of the fair is part of the local government’s institutionalized activities that have been lined up for the celebration of Urban Farmers’ Month to help in the promotion of the city’s agriculture.

Aside from the display of organically produced agricultural crops in the fair, Yangot said there will also be lectures conducted by experts in various aspects of organic farming to teach interested residents how to produce their own supply of agricultural crops.

The institutionalized celebration of Urban Farmers Month every May was enshrined in a resolution authored by Yangot and approved by Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan to help boost urban gardening that could serve as an added attraction for visitors frequenting the city.

Aside from food security, Yangot said organic farms and urban gardens will also help in the recycling of the city’s solid waste and could also become an attraction because of the unique designs can be presented in the backyards.

The agricultural fair at the Igorot Park is now on its third year and the number of exhibitors continues to increase because of the increasing number of residents actively involved in the production of organically-grown crops as part of a healthy lifestyle.

The celebration of the Urban Farmers Month is now being handled by the City Agricultural Division composed of three agriculturists under the supervision of the City Veterinary Office.

One of the activities lined up for this year’s celebration of Urban Farmers Month is the Search for the Best Urban Garden among urban gardening practitioners in the different barangays with the first prize receiving P25,999; second place, P15,000; and the third prize, P10,000, apart from the 10 consolation prizes that will be distributed to the winners.

Yangot urged the public to patronize the products of the city’s organic farmers by visiting the upcoming agricultural fair and attend the various lectures to inspire them to embrace organic farming and urban gardening to help strengthen the city’s agriculture sector.
