Cagayan de Oro City’s “Urban Household Container Gardening” recently bagged third place in the “Food Justice: Projects that improve food access in underserved communities” Category of the 2016 International Network for Urban Agriculture (INUAg) Awards.
The Urban Household Container Gardening Project is intended to combat rising problems of malnutrition, poverty and high drop-out rates among school age children in Cagayan de Oro. At-risk communities are taught to feed themselves by planting their own vegetables with their own, sometimes limited, space. In its second phase, The Urban Household Container Gardening Project added the integration of Solid Waste Management by recycling and re-integrating waste from the city into their container gardening projects.
