CLARK FREEPORT – A total of 34,000 ready-to-plant  seedlings were recently distributed to farm families in Capas, Tarlac under the seedling dispersal program of the Clark Development Corporation headed by Arturo P. Tugade.

The  seedlings which were supplied by East-West Seed Company included hybrid papaya, okra, eggplant, pepper and some others.

Capas Mayor Antonio C. Rodriguez thanked the CDC management for the donation which will go a long way in improving the diet of the farm families.

CDC also implements Prutas at Gulay sa Likod Bahay program in Mabalacat in Pampanga, Bamban in Tarlac and in the Indigenous People (Aeta) community.
