The City Government of Malaybalay through the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (City ENRO) composting facility offers free soil conditioners to all interested Malaybalay residents. This initiative enhances quality of the soil helpful to backyard gardening and other home ornamental plants.
Due to limited sources, for those that will use it for their flowering plants and gardens, five half sacks of soil conditioner are available per recipient. For nurseries, tree planting, and “Gulayan sa barangay” purposes, a larger amount of soil conditioner will be offered.
According to Kris Guerrero Tabernero, Supervising Environmental Management Specialist, the soil conditioner is produced from compostable waste collected in various households and establishments from Poblacion barangays 1-11, Sumpong and Casisang.
For those interested to avail of the program, please visit the Composting Facility located near the Northern Mindanao Wellness and Reintegration Center (NMWRC), also known as “Rehab” along the Diversion Road, Casisang, this City.
The City ENRO personnel will facilitate your request and requires everyone to bring their own sack/container.
