“Flex ko lang garden ko. Sana all eco friendly yung kalsada (Let me show off my garden. I hope all streets are eco-friendly),” captioned Glen Cui Infante.

Infante said he thought of planting seeds on their street because the cracked pavement still remained in a state of disrepair after a hydraulic drilling machine bore holes on the street more than a year ago. 

“More than 1 year na kasi yung mga butas so kusang tumubo mga grass at halaman. Experiment yung pagtanim if ano mauuna, pagtubo ng halaman or gawin yung kalsada? (They bore holes on it over a year ago so grass and plants already grew.  It is an experiment to see what will come first – the growth of the plants or the road repair?)” Infante told MB Online.

He said the “eco-friendly” garden is located at West Los Angeles St. in California Village, Novaliches, Quezon City.

Infante said he hopes after the post went viral online, the authorities will finally repair the road.

“Hopeful ako na gawin ng authority yung pag-ayos ng kalsada (I am hoping that they can repair the road soon).” 

The post already garnered over 16,000 reactions and 19,000 shares as of writing.
