The project, funded by the DA-Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR), under the Plant, Plant, Plant program, aims to promote EL in urban communities as additional source of available, fresh, and nutritious food.

It supports the efforts of the Department to establish food-resilient community amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, and promotes urban farming by incorporating various available technologies such as organic farming, vertical farming, hydroponics, and horticulture. (Photo by Adones Buhayan, DA-AFID)
