The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) buys back about 250,000 seedlings from Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) members in Mabini town, Pangasinan province. Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Director Marcelo Nicomedes Castillo said the 4Ps beneficiaries are members of the Villacorta Green Thumb Self Employment Assistance Kaunlaran Associa-tion. Castillo explained that DSWD awarded the beneficiaries P200,000 to purchase seedlings from DENR and after three months, bought the said seedling back at P5.80 each giving a total sales of P50,000. Castillo said each beneficiary was required to produce 10,000 seedlings but were given additional 1,000 seedlings for mortality rate. DENR will be using the seedlings in their National Greening Program.
