Propagation of edible landscaping technology and vertical farming systems to urban, peri-urban, and rural communities

  • UPLB’s edible landscaping technology combines the practical benefits of growing food with the aesthetic qualities of landscaping.
  • It is an artistic food production technology that is gradually being introduced in Filipino communities.
  • The vertical farming system is another way to promote food production and teach people to grow their own food in limited spaces.
  • Both practices promote food security and nutrition among urban, peri-urban, and even rural communities.
