The transformation of the stony vacant lot at the Malacañang Park into a lush vegetable garden was really very fast. This is the joint project of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) headed by Gen. Rolando Joselito Bautista and the Tarlac Heritage Foundation headed by Dr. Isa Cojuangco Suntay.
This is a portion of the vacant lot. Photo taken on December 21, 2016.
Photo taken December 28, 2016 shows workers forming the planting beds.
By Dec. 30, 2016, the planting beds were already formed.
The seedlings were planted on Jan. 6, 2017.
By Jan. 12, 2017, this is how the garden looked like with the mulched beds planted with vegetable seedlings of pechay, mustard and kangkong.
This is how the garden looked like on January 23, 2017.
