Mayor Jaime Fresnedi (center) receives 100 sacks of seeds and fertilizers from representatives of Villar SIPAG and Office of Sen. Cynthia Villar last March 10. Fresnedi extended his thanks to Sen. Villar for the donation and said it will help boost the city’s urban agriculture and farming efforts. Recently, the local government launched the “Gulayan sa Lungsod ng Muntinlupa” program and has partnered with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and University of the Philippines Institute of Plant Breeding (UP-IPB) for the training of communities on innovative farming technologies and promotion of urban agriculture.
