Despite the bad weather and the Black out, the Environment and Health committees pushed through with their gardening activity last September 29, 2006. They have made seedbeds and planted okra, mustard and eggplants at their mini nursery at the abandoned house right at the back of the St. Hannibal Training Center in Cornejo St. Malibay Pasay City. Meanwhile, other members of the group started cleaning the surroundings of the training center. While others are sweeping the fallen leaves, others were cutting the branches of the fallen chico tree right on the compost pit in front of the training center. After three hours of cleaning, the group went to their respective houses.
