The Central Jakarta Mayor Bayu Meghantara, inaugurated Central Jakarta Farm (JP Farm) on his office yard, on Thursday (2/20).

" This is our own effort to prepare food security. Hopefully the plants can grow as our expectation"

He said that JP Farm was formed thanks in good coordination between regional work units (UKPD) in the region. It was made on a 80-square meter width land that has 169 types of plants.

"This is our own effort to prepare food security. Hopefully the plants can grow as our expectation," he expressed.

Even canteen owners in the Central Jakarta Mayor Office could utilize agriculture results. Thus the employees could consume vegetables that are hygienic.

"We will ask them to take agricultural products at JP Farm," he exclaimed.

In the meantime, Central Jakarta Maritime, Agriculture and Food Security Sub-agency Head Suharini Eliawati explained that types of vegetables in question are like pakcoy, mustard greens, spinach, chili, water spinach and rice.

"Moreover the plant already had a barcode to find out information on the types of plants at JP Farm," she uttered.

At the same time, one of Pamdal officers Edward Ronald Sirait assessed that it was a positive step, whereby citizens could find out the types and benefits of plants through barcode scanning.

"This makes the mayor's office more beautiful," he stated.
