Edict on coffee growing set
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

“It’s about time for local coffee drinkers to enjoy a cup of home-grown Baguio coffee.”

This was the assertion of Councilor Philian Weygan-Allan, chair of the council committee on market, trade, commerce, and agriculture, in Monday’s flag-raising rites at City Hall.

She reported that there are more than 35 coffee growers in various areas of the city with around 3,000 coffee plants.

“Those who want to see this dream come true can join us in planting, harvesting, packing, and labeling coffee products through trainings and organizing,” Allan said.

She said the council recently passed a resolution encouraging all sectors in the city to participate in coffee farming in line with the city’s collective core agenda of strengthening livelihood and entrepreneurial services.

Allan hopes to craft the “Baguio Coffee Ordinance” in the next two years.

This includes an appeal pending in her committee to organize the Baguio urban organic farmers as the local legislature earlier approved the city’s agricultural plan for 2020 to 2022.

She said the council also adopted a resolution asking President Rodrigo Duterte to cede to the city the remaining portions of Slaughterhouse compound.

“The city envisions a comprehensive plan for a north bound bus terminal, veterinary, and agricultural compound including a satellite market in the area,” Allan added.
