PANABO CITY, Davao del Norte, October 21, 2015 Green Leaf Natural Farming Product Producers Association (GLNFPPA) benefited the Shared Service Facilities (SSF) of DTI Provincial Office given during the Launching Ceremony on October 13, 2015 at Barangay Gym, New Visayas, Panabo City.
The facility worth 299,000.00 with two (2) shreaders and one screen. This SSF was intended for organic fertilizer such as Vermie Tea and Vermie Cast, the trend of today’s natutre’s friendly farming.
OIC DTI Provincial Director, Romeo Castaῆaga related that Panabo City was the 4th to avail SSF, while two more to be given for this year. Next year, DTI will no longer venture on SSF but the Negosyo Center in which Panabo City is assured of being a beneficiary since Mayor James G. Gamao already signify his interest to be part of said endeavor, Dir. Castaῆaga revealed.
Ideally, Panabo will be a good Negosyo Center, Dir. Castaῆaga added. Furthermore, Dir. Castaῆaga ask the GLNFPPA to manage well the SSF that it will last longer with many to benefit it.
Meanwhile, City Councilor Atty. Janris Relampagos stressed that the City Government really supported the Natural Farming. In fact, in the recent wet market construction at the Panabo Central Market, a place was allotted for organic/natural farm products. Yet unluckily, there were no organic farm products sold there. Perhaps with this DTI SSF, more natural farm products will be facilitated.
The Launching Ceremony was started with the Holy Mass, and a blessing officiated by Fr. Arman Idago of the New Visayas Quasi Parish. It was followed by a short program and MOA signing.
