·1 min read

TWENTY-FOUR plant hobbyists from Toledo City are set to showcase their prized collections in a two-week plant fair.

The annual agro fair, which is organized by the Department of Agriculture (DA), will officially commence on June 1 concurrent with the opening salvo of Toledo City's weeks-long activities in celebration of the feast of Saint John of Sahagun and Independence Day on June 12.

The exhibition, which will end on June 18, will take place at a vacant lot beside the Toledo City Sports Center. Food stalls and other goods are also on display in the area.

The plant exhibitors are all members of the Toledo Ornamental Growers Society (Togs), an affiliate organization of DA.

Togs is composed of local plant collectors, growers, and sellers of all ages whose goal is to promote the city's flourishing horticultural industry.

Plants on display will include aroids, ferns, succulents, shrubs, and angiosperms, among others.

On June 3, the agriculture department will hold several competitions on dish gardening; terrarium and topiary making; and bonsai, orchid, hanging plant, and cactus exhibitions for the Togs members.

The agro fair is also participated by farmers' associations from the different barangays of Toledo City. They will showcase their village's agricultural products.
