The Buklod and KADIWA Christian Family Organizations (CFO) in the Ecclesiastical District of Taiwan launched the Gulayan Sa Bakuran (backyard vegetable gardening) among its members on December 9, 2020.

The said CFO’s members from the Philippines who are registered in the Local Congregation of Zhubei were among the early participants.

As Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), a number of them live in a dormitory and they worked together to embark on their own organic vegetable gardens. They shrugged off the issue of limited space in their home units by recycling old styrofoam boxes as planters, where they are now growing okra, tomato, string beans, eggplant, small chili peppers, among others.

The livelihood activity was unveiled by the Church Administration a few years ago and the brethren from Taiwan were delighted to be united in its noble aim to fighting starvation and malnutrition.

They found it to be very helpful during the pandemic, which worsened poverty and hunger.

Besides assuring themselves of having fresh, chemical-free vegetables to help them stay healthy, organic gardening, they say, can be an additional source of income. ― With reports from INC News Section
