In celebration of the Farmers and Fisher folks month for May 2017, the Farmers from Barangay Pamucutan of the West coast area of the city pioneered a Community Tree Planting activity. This was conducted last June 3, 2017 at Sitio Anuling.
This activity was spearheaded by the Farmers sector of the Barangay and was joined by the Women and Youth sectors. It was also supported by the BLGU officials and the Lupon members of the barangay.
Zamboanga City Water District (ZCWD) sponsored 500 tree seedlings of different varieties namely Narra, Bagtikan and Palomaria. These were all planted at the riverside and hillside of the Sitio.
The Community Tree Planting is their Climate Change Mitigation initiative as part of the Farmers Rights Advocacy which is being celebrated every month of May.
