The Baguio City Veterinary Office – Agricultural Division posted on Facebook that they’ve repacked seeds for distribution to barangays so people can start “survival gardens.”

The comments were very positive. One person said “Good job, I hope other cities do the same” while another said that they already had a lush garden and even attached a photo of it.

Different kinds of seeds ready to be distributed to different Baguio barangays for planting.

With the whole of Luzon on extreme enhanced community quarantine, getting food, especially fresh food, can be challenging.

The seeds are properly sealed and labeled to avoid confusion.

The BCVO-ASD is pro-actively helping residents find food security in a time of uncertainty.
