More people around the world are taking a look at urban farming and one of those is Manong Boy who offers to make food as “local” as possible. He advocate for green living through maximum utilization of home backyard. He said, urban farming advance the local people to grow what they need near where they live, and decrease the food miles linked with long-distance transportation.
