Edible Landscaping, in its essence, is simply Ornamental Landscaping but with edible products instead, according to Jim C. Raborar of Agricultural Training Institute-XII, a seasoned trainer on the subject and one of the judges for the contest. With emphasis on the aesthetics, landscapes are meant for showcasing to delight visitors.


Along with the other judges, Richielyn G. Delos Santos of Department of Tourism SOCCSKSARGEN (SOX) and Reynard Navarro of I Love SOX PH, My Mindanao, they evaluated all 28 landscape entries in their respective locations throughout the region using a set of criteria from aesthetics to eco-friendliness.


The contest was held as one of the SOX Farm Tourism Association’s strategic projects, in partnership with DOT-XII and the Villar Foundation, Inc.
