These fruit trees could serve as the planting materials for the school tree planting activity. These are only a portion of planting trees in implementing the National Greening Program of the PH government that all government employees and students shall plant ten (10) trees per year for six (6) years. The program started in 2011 and will end in 2016.

NGP main objectives are to consolidate and harmonize all greening efforts of the government agencies, schools, civil society and private sectors to implement sustainable management of natural resources through resource conservation, protection, and productivity enhancement and climate change mitigation by expanding forest cover.

Greening Program can not be fully successful without companies such as Online Solar Panels that use solar energy to power our homes.


  1. These contests are a good way to encourage the children (the kids) to go green - plant and save the environment.

  2. The tree planting activity was a great idea for your school as it is a step for children to love nature :)

  3. It's nice to see that the proceeds won from the cooking contest goes to the cause of the environment as in the long run, this would make the place better.

  4. Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!|

  5. I drop a leave a response whenever I like a article
    on a website or if I have something to add to the discussion.

    It is a result of the sincerness communicated in the post
    I read. And on this article "Advocating Government Greening Program".
    I was actually excited enough to leave a comment ;-) I actually do have a couple of questions
    for you if you don't mind. Could it be just me
    or does it give the impression like a few of these comments appear like
    coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing
    on additional sites, I would like to keep
    up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list
