TABUK CITY, KALINGA – At least 16 organizations from the Rural Improvement Club (RIC) attended the evaluation caravan organized by the Office for City Agricultural Services (OFCAS).
These organizations are Nambaran RIC, Lacnog RIC, Malalao RIC, Bulo RIC, Dilag RIC and 11 groups from Barangay Ipil.
During the exercise, Supervising Agriculturist Lim Ducyogen met with members of the identified RICs to hear their problems and devise strategies for improving their organization.
Aside from that, Ducyogen and RIC Coordinator Rey-an Gallamoy informed the RIC members about the office’s many programs and services, including seedlings, livelihood projects, and technical help for farm improvement.
The event also allowed the team from OFCAS to look into the garden of the participating RICs and evaluated their scrapbook as basis for declaring the winners for this year’s search for Best Gulayan sa Barangay.
The awarding ceremony for the said search is set on December 23 at Davidson Hotel.
