DILIMAN, Quezon City—Practitioners of urban agriculture in the country are stressing the importance of having the willingness to learn proper seed-to-table techniques as key to productive farming at home.
“You will always reap something from gardening, whether good or bad… This is a learning experience for everybody, and there are so many resources out there available for us to learn from,” celebrity farmer Mylene Dizon said.
In the third episode of Agri Tayo, dubbed as “Meet Your (Urban) Garden II”, Dizon called on everyone to start urban gardening now.
