"The ways in which we help constituents generate income should be patterned after protection and preservation of our dwindling natural resources and the environment. We must enjoin all sectors to promote and support practices that provide positive outcomes not only for the people but also for the natural surroundings," Singson emphasized in the launch of the project.
The project is initiated by Punong Barangay Ernesto Tadeja who is himself an avid farmer-gardener. He has for several decades now maintained a growing spot of reforestation on the hills of the Cordillera range and he hopes that the long-term project will not only benefit the current residents but the coming generations.
The Integrated Organic Orchard project is located at Santo Tomas, Santo Domingo, Ilocos Sur.
