Puntod, Cagayan de Oro City. Aside from pechay, the harvest includes cucumbers and okra, which were distributed to all personnel as a form of assistance in this time of pandemic. Urban backyard gardening in EMB Region 10 started as an environmental activity during their celebration of the World Environment Day last June. With its success, EMB Region 10 launched a region-wide Search for Best Urban Backyard Garden for individuals and groups as a way to adapt to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Winners were announced on August 30, 2020.###
