MANILA, Philippines — Naniniwala si Sen. Cynthia A. Villar na ang  urban vegetable gardening ang tamang tugon ng komunidad sa mataas na presyo ng mga bilihin lalo na ang mga produktong pagkain  at para na rin sa food sufficiency.

Sinabi ni Villar, chairperson ng Senate Committee on Agriculture and Food, na dapat matutunan ng mga pamilya ang urban gardening upang magkaroon ng sariling mga gulay at matipid ang kanilang kinikita na puwedeng gamitin sa ibang gastusin.

‘Inflation is high. Everything is so expensive now, especially our food products. Vegetables are among the food produce the cost of which have gone considerably up. But we can counter this. Urban gardening is possible even in the most crowded areas. You should seriously consider this new norm to ensure not only food on your tables, but the health of your family as well,’ pahayag ni Villar sa may 180 farmers, farm enthusiasts at hobbyists na lumahok sa pagtatapos at Harvest Festival training sa Urban Vegetable Farming sa Villar SIPAG Farm School Las Piñas-Bacoor. 

“Life is hard. Every centavo of our hard-earned incomes are valuable to us. We can use the money we can save if we don’t buy vegetables anymore to buy other basic commodities, or pay bills. We should all learn to adapt to the difficult times,” dagdag niya. 

Maaaring gawin sa mga bahay ang urban farming pati sa mga komunidad na may masikip at limitadong lugar. Maari silang magtanim ng gulay at binhi sa maliliit na paso at plastic containers upang magkaroon ng sarili vegetable garden at masustansiyang pagkain.
