District 3810 Greenhouse Project Update

   

December 22, 2012, Bagbag II Elementary School, Rosario, Cavite - Rotary Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone Club Secretary Gabe Trias visited the District 3810 Greenhouse Project to assess its condition.

 

The District 3810 Greenhouse Project  is a District Grant Project applied on February 13, 2012 for approval by District Rotary Foundation Chair PDG Josie Ang and ChangeMaker District governor Ernie Choa. A Memorandum of Agreement was signed between involved parties for the project.

 

A few months later since the last visit on May 5, flooding due to typhoons affected the whole project due to elevation and water drainage problems.

 

On December 22nd, Club Secretary Gabe Trias made an unofficial visit. A new Agriculture Teacher Nicanor B. Garcia is now assigned to manage the Greenhouse Project. Graduated with an Agriculture Degree at Cavite State University-Indang, Mr. Garcia made some major changes on the project replacing the poly-carbonate panel walls with heavy duty fish nets to allow more air to come in; more plants have grown much better with all the changes he has made. Mr. Garcia has also discussed the other changes he would like more necessary funding to implement for the care of the whole project.

 

 

A shallow well was constructed using an old water pump.

 

Fish nets replaced the poly-carbonate panels.

 

An improved garden very-well maintained with the care of Mr. Garcia.

 

The fruits of tender loving care.
