Alabel, Sarangani Province – The turnover of Agricultural Tools for Community Gardening under the National Urban and Peri-Urban Agriculture Program (NUPAP) was held last October 19, 2023, at Barangay Alegria, this town.

Municipal Mayor Hon. Vic Paul Molina Salarda, MPA, expressed his support for the farmers and members of the Lanao Balot Farmers Association, who were the primary recipients of these tools.

The aim is for their community gardening efforts to prosper, leading to increased vegetable production, which will help enhance the local food supply. NUPAP, a new program under the Department of Agriculture (DA), seeks to boost food production while reducing logistical costs.

This initiative is in response to global concerns, including food security, climate change, and the escalating prices of fuel and essential resources.
