Mayor Lani also noted that the city’s urban gardening program favors organic farming where pesticides, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics, and growth hormones are not used on crops. She noted that organically grown products are better for the environment and for a person’s health.

The Taguig Urban Farm also includes herbal plants such as insulin which helps lower blood glucose levels, oregano for cough treatment, and gotu kola which can be used for improving memory and blood circulation.
