In this week’s episode of Galing Pook, learn how the tiny mung bean seeds changed the lives of the people of San Mateo in the Province of Isabela.
They were initially used to restore the soil’s fertility, destroyed by decades of exposure to chemical fertilizer. But now, the mung bean—also called munggo or balatong—not only brought San Mateo soil back to life; it also opened a lot of opportunities for the people, changing their lives for the better.
