Farmer cooperator gives away free seedlings during the COVID-19 pandemic

By Patricia Bianca S. Taculao

Sanny Buncha of Bunch Farm, a Learning Site for Agriculture of the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) in Region IV-A, distributed free ready-to-plant seedlings in Lucena City and other nearby municipalities. 

Buncha saw the need for food sustainability during this difficult time so he wanted to promote farming, especially during the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), to cope with the economic effect of the COVID-19 pandemic while also aiming to achieve food security. 

With the help of the Agricultural Program Coordinating Office in Quezon and a colleague in the private sector, the farmer cooperator’s initiative is going well. 

Now on their fifth wave, Buncha has been receiving positive responses from the recipients of his free ready-to-plant seedlings who are now converting their backyards and other available spaces in edible landscapes. 

Almost 10,000 seedlings of various ready-to-plant vegetables have been distributed to the locals of the region.
