Visiting the World Vegetable Center

AVRDC (Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center)

At last I made it to AVRDC - The World Vegetable Center!  Coming to this place has been a long dream especially when I was working as a plant scientist in the Philippines.  Hence, this is a dream come true!
My family was given an exclusive seminar by Maureen Mecozzi, Head of the Communications and Information Department.  Later on Willie gave us a tour of the research facility.  It was indeed a great experience for all of us.

Willie (L) gave us a tour of the research center.

I'll write more about AVRDC - The World Vegetable Center later.

I have never heard of this place so I am quite interested to hear more.

Hi, I've not been here for a while. How is AVRDC now, I was there during its inauguration decades ago. The former head, Dr Liwayway Engle, was my BS teacher in Genetics.

What a beautiful blog! Your love of plants and growing really shines through. It was our pleasure to show you and your family around the AVRDC campus. Come and visit us again!

Best,
