“I’ve always advocated for home gardening as a strategy for food security and for the alleviation of nutrient deficiency. It will be a big help for families to have direct access to nutritious foods that they don’t have to buy,” Villar said.

The senator stressed that home gardening can be done by anyone and even in a confine space.

She also adds that in times of natural calamities, where there are disruptions in the food supply, home grown vegetables can fill the gap.

“We should take advantage of the quarantine, when we are all mandated to stay home and take care of ourselves, to stay productive by starting to plant seeds, grow food and harvest later on,” Villar said.
