THE city’s plan to institutionalize urban container gardening (UCG) was recently launched with a permanent exhibit at the rooftop of the City Hall Annex Building. “The idea is to show people that it is possible to produce food even in a small plot of land… inspire Dabawenyos to engage in container gardening even if they live in the urban areas” City Agriculture Office Chief Leo Brian D. Leuterio said.
CAO will be conducting UCG trainings twice a month and will be partnering with the barangays for the establishment of at least 10 UCG areas in each community. The city has partnered with Perfecto Rom, Jr., known for the development of the Household Resource Dynamic Flow used in UCG.
