The provincial government of Negros Occidental turned over veterinary projects to recipients in Bago City yesterday, to boost livestock production and ensure food security amid the coronavirus threat.
Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson, Vice Governor Jeffrey Ferrer, Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena, and other provincial officials, along with Bago City Mayor Nicolas Yulo, led the turnover of projects in barangays Lag-asan and Poblacion.
The Negrense Volunteers for Change (NVC) Foundation Inc. has tapped RU Foundry and Machine Shop Corp. (RUFMSC) for its food sustainability project for the marginalized sector.
NVC has initiated the “Garden of Hopes” to create edible gardens in unused or empty urban lots in Bacolod City.
To prepare the gardens, the nongovernment organization tapped the resources of RUFMSC, which dispatched a technical team to share their expertise in the development and preparation of the planting site.
