This started as a way to encourage out little ones to eat vegetables, and have a deeper appreciation of knowing how to grow their own food. In early 2015 we’ve seen some videos about the potential shortage in food because of the exponential population growth estimating the world population to be at 19 Billion in 2050. We thought this will not be case for the Philippines being an agricultural nation, but we realized that more and more farmers are moving to other industries, and we have to try and do our part in advocating urban farming.
So after a year or so of experience in growing the most common crops Filipino’s consume we started the Urban Farming Philippines Facebook Group in early 2017. Now the group have more than a thousand members, and growing by the day. We have also done a learning session and distribution of seeds in a poor community in the Island Garden City of Samal in April when we did the Homesteading Brigade.
We intend to continue advocating urban farming in and outside of Steemit, and we look forward to doing more education sessions, and seeds distribution in the future.
