Manila, Philippines – Flaunting not just their beauty but also their newly acquired floral arrangement knowhow, the contestants of this year’s Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant gave media people and onlookers a glimpse of their gamesmanship on plant care and flower crown making at the Farmer’s Garden in Araneta Center, Cubao.
This weekend’s Binibining Pilipinas public relations drive was about a quick course on plant care, headed by master gardener Lisa Matilla, who has been in the gardening business at Farmer’s Garden since 2012. The master gardener imparted her knowledge and experience on plant cultivation, maintenance, and sustenance.
Beyond the gardening sessions, the Binibini candidates had a flower crown making activity. Tenants from Farmers Garden assisted the candidates in making a “green” crown out of the flowers, leaves, and other materials provided to them.
The candidates were divided into 4 groups of ten, with one selected per group as the best in flower crown making. The winners are:
Binibini # 8 Meiji Cruz (Valenzuela City)
Binibini # 14 Hazel Joy Ortiz (Pasig City)
Binibini # 21 Hannah Arnold (Masbate)
Binibini # 33 Alexandra Faith Garcia (Olongapo City)
As in the past, the series of beauty and socio-civic workshops and activities aim to instill envisioning dreams and pursuing them.
The 2020 Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant will see a new beauty crowned on April 26.
