People who are going to the DA-BPI are encouraged to wear face masks and observe proper social distancing. They said that this is a way to eat healthy amid the COVID-19 crisis. And due to the challenges we are facing now, they also encourage people to save the seeds from the vegetables and fruits that they buy.

The seeds and seedlings are available at BPI, Malate (692 San Andres St. Malate- near LRT Quirino ) and Quezon City (Visayas Ave., Diliman, near QC Circle) offices.
