Completing the short training course on hydroponics vegetable production with emphasis on SNAP Hydroponics is one of the requirements for being an authorised reseller of SNAP Hydroponics nutrient solutions. The training course is conducted in Plant Physiology Laboratory in UPLB Institute of Plant Breeding. This guide will show you how to get there if you are interested on being trained on hydroponics vegetable production for your hobby or business.
Where is the UPLB Institute of Plant Breeding (IPB)?
It is far from the UPLB campus and is a little challenging to get to. Do not despair because there is a shuttle that ferries people from UPLB to UPLB-IPB.
I’m commuting. How Do I Get There?
It’s easy to commute to UPLB. Get there before 7:30AM. If you are too early you can spend your time in the fast food chains around the area. Ask the guards for directions to the admin building parking lot. It’s not very far. If you are facing the gate it’s the very first building to your left. Remember to obey traffic rules. Smoking and littering are prohibited inside the campus.
The easiest commute route is commuting to UPLB campus and riding the free shuttle service that ferries staff and student from the UPLB campus to UPLB-IPB.
The shuttle service is free for everyone. If you are there by 7:30 AM queues should start forming. Be sure to ask which shuttle the queue is for before you queue. Because you might be queuing for the wrong one.
The shuttle can get pretty crowded. You might need to give up your seat to someone who needs it more than you. Please be considerate.
The ride is going to take around 15 mins. Sit back and enjoy the scenery. The shuttle is going to take you directly to UPLB-IPB.
When the bus stops, get off and take the path immediately facing the bus door. Follow it to the Physiology Lab.
I have my own vehicle. How do I get there?
You can use navigation apps. You can also try and tail the UPLB-IPB shuttle when it leaves for it’s 7:45AM trip as I described above. Just make sure to ask the shuttle’s driver if it is OK.
