Former dumpsite to be converted to eco-park
by PIO release

The city council authorized the Mayor Mauricio to enter into an agreement with the Philippine Bamboo Foundation (PBF) and other corporate partners for the conversion of a portion of the former Irisan open dumpsite to an eco-park through the planting of bamboo in the area.

Under the proposed tripartite agreement, the foundation will be the one to implement the propagation of the bamboo verities with the cooperation of the interested barangays and plant the same in the former Irisan dumpsite. The corporate partners will purchase the bamboo planted by the barangays to serve as their sources of livelihood.

City Environment and Parks Management Office Head Cordelia Lacsamana said the local government supports the proposal of PBF because the city will not spend an amount for the project.

PBF President Edgardo L. Manda said the planting of bamboo species within a three-hectare portion of the former Irisan dumpsite is achievable, provided that the variety to be planted will be the phylostakis aurea which has a root system that can radiate into the soil and spread to kilometers.

The council stated that after the finalization of the agreement, the same shall be returned to the council for confirmation before the project is implemented.

Based on the timetable adopted by the PBF, the propagation will be done from January to May while the planting will be done during the rainy season.

Aside from the propagation and planting of the species at the former dumpsite, Manda said the foundation will also provide training for them to be able to create handicrafts made out of bamboo.

He said there is a growing demand for bamboo in various parts of the country primarily for handicraft purposes that is why the foundation has continuously embarked on the mass propagation of bamboo in various parts of the region.

Manda assured the council that the conversion of the former Irisan dumpsite into an eco-park will be an added attraction in Baguio.
