This award focuses on the concept of sustainable gardening, by utilizing natural resources while minimizing the use of chemical fertilizers and pest control methods. Our winner’s dedication to reducing waste and adopting environmentally friendly practices sets her apart. 

Ms. Sze grows her plant organically using seeds and odorless compost made from kitchen scraps. She uses liquid fertilizer such as Fermented Fruit Juice (FFJ) for fruit bearing plants, Fish Amino Acid (FAA) from fish innard, and Water Soluble Calcium made from fermented egg shells soaked in vinegar. She also employs vermicomposting by using African Night crawlers to convert organic waste into compost that makes her plants healthier and lush.

Sheridan Towers residents and Property Manager Ms. Beryl A. Ato & Wilrine I. Delos Santos



This award goes to the community that spearheaded activities promoting a greener community. Through the establishment of their youth scouts, children are groomed to be eco warriors by developing habits such as proper waste segregation, recycling, and landscape appreciation. 

The community awardee also established a makeshift community garden for the seedlings and buds planted by the scouts. By starting them young, the responsibility of taking care of their community’s greenscape is passed on to future generations.
