Last August 2, PAUW – UP members toured the estate and observed how their MRF operates efficiently, processing novelty items, bags and deco materials in the process. The informal meeting of ZWRM Phils. Foundation Inc. officials and PAUW – UP Pres. Menchu Pascual resulted in an agreement. PAUW – UP Diliman is to host a convention with them that should radically change views about garbage and significantly form a community that will be RA 9003 compliant.The visit to the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center was made possible by the gracious Mrs. Daisy M. Tamayo.
Meanwhile the PAUW – UP Garden Club in cooperation with the Church of the Risen Lord Women’s Guild Mayana Club is currently holding a series of lectures. Last July 26, a lecture-demo about “Unfamiliar Local Vegetables for Food” was given. Participants had a taste of Talinum paniculatum salad and stewed Sandoricum koltjape among other recipes.More lectures about the function of MRFs in maintaining productive gardens are to follow. The photo above shows participants during the July 26 lecture led by Prof. Glo Caccam (seated, 3rd fr. right) with Nedy Simpas and Bishop Jessie Suarez. Also present during the activity were Cathy Q.

Right after the visit to UPHMC in Las Pinas, PAUW – UP members & Zonta Manila members with Pres. Menchu Pacual planted more trees in the Diliman Campus. Micro – watersheds and clog – free river systems in many ways, define flood prevention in this volatile part of the region.
