Abstract

The Global Garden Project is a collaborative initiative aimed at improving food security, nutrition and livelihoods through vegetable production in peri-urban contexts. The objective is to develop sustainable urban and peri-urban food systems that are inclusive, resilient, safe and diverse to provide healthy and affordable food source. Cagayan de Oro, and its neighboring municipalities was chosen as the pilot area for the project. The Project was facilitated through the collaborative efforts of University of Canberra, the Local Government Unit of Cagayan de Oro City, 1st District of the Province of Bukidnon, Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan, Department of Education (DepEd), the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro, and the Urban Food International.

The introductory workshop was held on July 9, 2019 at the Southeast Asian Rural Social Leadership Institute (SEARSOLIN) of Xavier University, while the Asset-based community food mapping was conducted on July 11, 2019 at Baluban National High School, Brgy. Balubal, Cagayan de Oro City. Balubal National High School was chosen as the host-DepEd School because of its urban gardening initiatives. The 2-day workshop was facilitated by experts in the field of urban agriculture and food security.
