Alfonso Mayor Randy Salamat gave out seeds to his constituents so that they would turn their backyards green during the quarantine.
It looks like many heeded his call, and the local government has awarded the best backyard gardens in one barangay.
In a Facebook post, Salamat said the residents with the backyard gardens proved that those who plant will have something to reap.
He was glad that they were able to do something with their time during the quarantine and were able to grow produce that they could serve at the table.
Looks like he wants to turn everybody in Alfonso into a plantito or plantita!
“Awarding of Backyard Garden sa Barangay Buck Estate!
Congratulations po sa lahat ng nanalong backyard garden sa Buck Estate, tunay nga namang pag may itinanim may aanihin.
Nakakatuwang napagyabong ng mga Alfonseño ang mga Buto ng Buhay na ating ipinamigay. Bukod sa nagkakaroon sila ng libangan ay nagkakaroon pa sila ng gulay na ihahain sa kanilang hapag kainan.
Congratulations din po sa buong Sangguniang Barangay ng Buck Estate sa pangunguna ni Kapitana Aimy Casabuena, sa pagsasagawa ng isang napakagandang proyekto na ito.
#ResponsablengSerbisyo,” Salamat posted.
