The Edible Recreational Garden Competition aimed to promote household food security, recreation, and eco-tourism by showcasing design and beauty of edible-recreational garden landscaping which includes practical integration of vegetables, herbs, spices, ornaments, fruits, trees and fishes. The activity became a venue that showcased the talent, creativity, and artistry of Laguneños on the field of Landscaping.
The competition was headed by the ER-FARM Office headed by Provincial Agriculturist Marlon P. Tobias. (Article by Edward C. Aquino/Analee P. Vergel)
