Location of La Trinidad, Benguet, Philippines

Article below

Located 3 kilometers north of Baguio City, La Trinidad is home to a mix of ethno-linguistic groups. Its urban area radiates from the valley floor which is surrounded by mountain ridges with a cool climate of 18.55 degrees centigrade.

As the capital town of Benguet, it serves as the trading, educational and institutional center for the province.

Business activities are based on the marketing of agricultural products from the La Trinidad Vegetable Trading Post to market outlets across the country.

Its rustic character remains in the rural areas whose economy focuses on the production of high value commercial vegetables, cutflowers and strawberries, earning its reputation as "The Strawberry Fields and Rose Garden of the Philippines."

History of La Trinidad, Benguet, Philippines

La Trinidad has its own interesting contributions to the colorful history of the Cordilleras. The very name “Benguet” was once limited to the area of what is now the La Trinidad Valley. Its name La Trinidad is the namesake of her discoverer, Don Q.M. Quirante's beloved and beautiful wife. At a certain time in the late 1800's and early 1900's, La Trinidad was relatively the most developed settlement in the Benguet area. It likewise served as the capital of the administrative territory of Benguet during the Spanish era, the short-lived Philippine Revolutionary government and the early part of the American Rule.

In June 16, 1950, La Trinidad became a regular municipality by virtue of RA #531. The commercialization of the vegetable industry of the Province of Benguet rendered La Trinidad as the center of marketing activities during the mid 80's. This spurred socio-economic growth for the municipality. Today, with signs of near cityhood, La Trinidad continues to have an agriculturally-based economy boasting of its strawberry and flower gardens.

Natural Resources of La Trinidad, Benguet, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!

Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More

We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
