Annual search for best urban garden proposed
by PIO release

The search for edible or home backyard gardens should be an institutionalized event in recognition of the contribution of urban gardening in environmental protection and food security. 

Pending before the city council is the proposed ordinance that seeks to make the search an annual event. Authored by Councilor Leandro Yangot Jr., he said the event should be a regular event of Urban Farmer’s Month, which is celebrated every May.

He proposed a P300,000 allocation for prizes and operational expenses.

The proposed ordinance also designated the City Agricultural Division as the implementing department of the year-round search for the edible home backyard garden in the city, the requirements, criteria, mechanics and guidelines of the search which will be formulated and prepared by the said office in coordination with other concerned government agencies and departments.

Yangot explained that the urban gardening contest is a city-wide home garden competition and tour in which Baguio residents are challenged to showcase their edible home gardens, and raise their level of creativity on the use of urban spaces.

The ordinance pointed out that a fitting tribute is but proper in due recognition of the remarkable role of urban gardening and green advocates, particularly those who cultivate organic farming.

Even though a highly urbanized city, Yangot said there are still various areas being used for agricultural purposes.

There are numerous agricultural practitioners from 24 barangays of the city.
