Through the Health and Nutrition Program, provided garden tools and equipment which are useful for the “gulayan sa paaralan” program, gsp community garden, maintenance in the cleanliness of school ground, and in school waste management system. The garden implements are also utilized in classroom instructions as part of the lessons in gardening for livelihhod subjects. The implements have contributed largely to the vegetable garden production which supplies nutritious vegetables to the school-based feeding program (SDFP) catering for 50 under-nourished puplis.
