Meanwhile, the greenery project has gone viral on social media as netizens were amazed. However, some netizens said that the project is not a good idea. One netizen said that plants will not be healthy as they absorb pollution from cars.

Others said that it could be dangerous for people who would harvest the vegetables when picking season comes. But the reason why the LGU of Prosperidad wanted to pursue this venture is that it can also promote agri-tourism in the area.
