CAGAYAN DE ORO. Retired police officer Honorio Cervantes in his organic farm at Zone 5, Barangay Pagatpat, this city. An advocate of square foot gardening, he dreams that his gardening method will be a model project to the youth and even former drug personalities.
“As a farmer, I have this movement I call FAITH which means ‘Food Always in the Home’.

A retired city police director and a barangay kagawad, Cervantes is aware of the inevitable dilemma of drug dependents who have already surrendered. The square foot urban gardening may be a venue for recovery and reconciliation with one’s self, he noted.
“It is amazing how far this project has come. Agriculture specialists, agriculture majors, and even common farming enthusiasts are now coming to my farm just to have me discuss this method to them,” said Cervantes.
“I sure do hope that this farming practice can make a difference in the society,” Cervantes said.
