SYNOPSIS

Over the coming decades, a changing climate, growing global, rising food prices and environmental stressors will have significant on food security which is addressing SDG number 2. In view of these issues, urban farming has becoming popular the recent years. People has also started to be conscious on the vegetables they are taking in terms of chemical fertiliser and pesticide applied to the plants. By growing their own vegetables, they can ensure that the food is organic and free from chemical pesticide which is harmful to health. Lately, due to Covid19, urban farming is getting more popular and seen as a means to stress releaser. Many people who work from home start gardening in their backyard and they find it as therapy to their working condition. In this webinar, the speaker will share her experience in growing her own vegetables starting in 2017 and since then she has not been buying vegetables from the market. In addition, with the involvement from the neighbourhood, urban farming has also been a source of income generation to the community.
