Urban Gardening: Growing Herbs and Vegetables

Growing up in the province exposed me to gardening—I do not hesitate to hold and mix the soil for pots and other recyclable materials at home.

The Ayyew-Ubbo Network which I joined in 2016 contributed solutions to the garbage problem of the city. From 2016 to 2018, the Network...

Gardening in the time of a pandemic: Baguio’s urban vegetable lifeline

The health crisis and imposition of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) due to the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) unmasked not only the shortcomings in the Philippines’ health system but also exposed the urgency of addressing issues in food security.

As people continue to find ways to keep food...
