PISHOG

The PISHOG Garden Site is a vacant lot adjacent to Block 8, Lot 12 Gen Lim St. where the drainage pipe of the upper part of Block 8 flows downward to General Lim St and traversing Gen Ola St in Block 10 of Soldiers Hills 2 Subdivision (SH2), Las Piñas City MM.Since the site is unoccupied and an open space from 1982 (Soldiers Hills 2 construction time of builders and contractors) to present, the area serves as dumping site of thrash of adjacent homeowners. Tersy Flores who regularly tend the thrash for disposal to the roaming garbage trucks of Las Piñas, started converting the place into a mini-forest to discourage throwers of garbage. With the support of the subdivision and encouragemen of PACIFICTECH, PISHOG was conceptualized.With this simple project of PISHOG, it is visioned to inform children, youth, women, senior citizens, homeowners and adjacent communities on urban gardening and greening efforts for sustainable, safe and healthy environment.
