Sustainability has long been a common problem especially in the outskirt regions of our country. Not to mention in the far flung areas where scarcity often takes place and the constituents have to make ends meet in order to survive even on a day to day basis of existence. In order to address this type of problem, certain measures had been set forth but then the problem on implementing guidelines has been tarnished by flaws as how it should be laidout.

Then came the green revolution project of the late president Marcos wherein embedded in its program were not only concentrated on greening project but also agricultural based programs but as said, the problems of implementation in order to fully appreciate its effect was too much politicized until it eventually faded away and has long been forgotten.

The question on sustainability or so to speak subsistence has been a plague in our society and constituents had focused on daily existence instead of a long term plan to enable them to provide not only for their family’s existence but to this community as well. The school has been a basic foundation of skills and learning and is the ideal point for a project such as the “Gulayan sa Paaralan,” for it will not only benefit the children regarding sustainability but will embed in their consciousness the realization of how important these vegetables, their nutrients and vitamins and the effect of healthy living.

Often, if not most, of the school grounds nationwide is in vast property left unattended and turning these idle portions in a somewhat green pasture of vegetation will not only turn the school into a refreshing scenery but also as said, awaken the consciousness of the student populace on the effect of having a healthy dietary intake but also on the nutrients and vitamins the body absorbs when these vegetables are digested by the human body.

Also, it will not only be as earlier said soothing to the eye during its bloom but will also nourish the human body and eventually the surplus will be turned into profit not only for the school per se but to the community where this “Gulayan sa Paaralan “ will be implemented.

In short, the “Gulayan sa Paaralan” project when fully implemented will not only benefit the school and its studentry but also the community because the project will serve as an inspiration for the community and awaken their consciousness on the effect of a green environment.

To end, the “Gulayan sa Paaralan “ is a multi-beneficial project to the school, the student populace in terms of nutritional benefits not to mention the monetary consideration it will bring about by its surplus, but will be a community-wide benefit for all, for it will not only touch on the physical attributes but also awaken the mental and psychological attributes of the community and thus ensure self-sustainability.

  • Theanna: I feel sad for young Kisha and her pretty picture, spoiled by a tirade of "the political monstrosity obtaining (sic) in our country..." And it's you, (writer with no name) not her, who "virtually hurled a challenge..." I'm not a professional photographer but I know a lot about it. If this was supposed to be a sunset, where is the sun? If you called it "cogon grass with flowers" that would have been more appropriate. If the picture was enhanced, it was overdone and unrealistic.

  • Theanna: Thanks Judge for that timely and alarming info on the country's postal service. I thought that by now, things are much better than when I was there. May I add a few cents worth of fond remembrance of the late fabulous Fr. James Reuter, SJ? I never met him but my brothers and male relatives were all Ateneans and Fr.Reuter's name was often mentioned at our house. When I heard that Roxanne of Cyranno de Bergerac was being played by one of the handsomest guys in school, I had to see it. Also, my brother told us about the time our father and he met him on Ateneo Ave. After exchanging greetings, he asked father, " Is he your eldest son?" My father replied, "Oh no, my eldest son is a daughter." The whole family burst into tearful laughter. View Post

  • Theanna: Thanks for the above concerns. I thought I was the only one who sensed something odd, since I read the news printed under the Business section on Nov.15. I posted a comment, after much deliberation, on Nov. 17 re the offensive word in the headline. My simple arithmetic doesn't add up to the expected results of this huge 3billion peso project. I feel like the child in Hans Christian Andersen's story of "The Emperor's New Clothes". I can't figure out how the people there can generate 100 tons of garbage a day. View Post

  • Pastor Dan: Can we rely on the government to be able to address the perennial problem of hunger and malnutrition among marginalized children ? Your guess is as good as mine... I just thought we could be more introspective with the developmental role of privately funded NGOs. The NGOs can play a crucial role in addressing this issue... more so if the present dispensation manifest some tangible support for them... View Post
  • Engr. Efren Rempola: Tama ka dyan, Manoy Joel, bako man si Fortuno o si Aga Muhlach an mabugtak saimo sa Kapitolyo tangaring ibalik mo sa mga taga-Camarines Sur an harong na ini. Kun talagang habo saimo ni Aga, sa cuarto distrito, yaon baga si dating Cong. Wimpy Fuentebella asin an mga Alcalde na supotado ki Spkr Noli Fuentebella. Dae naman yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte ta aram naman ninda na drama man sana an labanan kan mag-amang Luis asin L-Ray. Sa quinto distrito (Rinconada), Manoy Joel, yaon baga si dating Cong Nancing Alfelor. Aram man sana kan gabos na Rinconada na iyo ini an tunay na LP bakong si Fortuno. Dae naman pati yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte nin huli ta bistado na an iwal-mag-ama na sarong pakitang-tao lang tangaring sinda-sinda na sana an maglaban sa eleccion, eh, ngonyan yaon ka dyan Manoy, dikit na sacripisyo na lang, hahalion na an mag-ama asin ma-ibabalik na an Kapitolyo sa mga tao.
