MANGATAREM – Despite heavy monsoon rains on August 19, a group of students and employees from the Phinma-University of Pangasinan (UPang) pitched in for a tree planting project at the Manleluag Spring Protected Landscape here.
Mark Macaventa, chief operations officer of Phinma Pangasinan, said at least 120 members of the academe and 15 volunteer-residents worked together despite the rainy condition to plant some 1,500 narra seedlings provided by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Pangasinan.
Macaventa said the greening activity, now on its sixth year, is part of the 60th anniversary celebration of Phinma Corporation and an annual project of the institution in partnership with DENR that aims to mitigate flooding and soil erosion in the province
“We have an agreement with DENR, that we will adopt a certain portion of land to plant trees as our way to preserve the environment,” Macaventa said when asked why they chose to plant trees in Mangatarem town.
He also added that it is part of the simultaneous one-day outreach program of PHINMA Company that was held in various areas in the country with more than 1,800 members of the PHINMA community and volunteers. (PIA-1, Pangasinan)
