Alma E. Nacua*, Custer C. Deocaris and Nenita O. Santos

ABSTRACT

This research is an output of Science Technology and Society (STS) subject, which is a General Education subject taken during the first year level of the College and Arts and Sciences students. Under this course subject, there was a topic called environmental awareness, where students were taught to plant on an open space like the roof top of Universidad de Manila to make it greener and at the same time to grow vegetable for food. Students come from underprivileged family. Most of the students are from the depressed areas of Tondo, Manila. The community is populated with residence who are receiving below standardized salary. The subject guided them to be aware of their surroundings, and on how it can be useful to them.

Student were encouraged to use the vacant lots or even small spaces at the vicinity of their community that can be converted into a green space. At the end of this experiment students learned to improve their nutritional health and develop their environmental appreciation. The purpose of the study was to test the possibility Luffa cylindrica (Patola) in a recyclable Styrofoam with the garden soil will be possible. The experimental design method was used. The controlled variable was Luffa cylindrica seed grown on the same type of container with loam soil from June to 0ctober 2019. Conclusion: The possibility of growing the Luffa cylindrica (L) generated 28 % possible with the 60 cm average length of the fruit using loam soil.
