Cebu, Philippines - September 2020 - The Youth Center of the "Our Lady of Lourdes" parish in Cebu has launched the #Let’sPlantPositivity initiative, a challenge to promote urban agriculture among young people. The initiative was organized by the Parochial Youth Coordination Council, led by Fr Abundio Bacatan, SDB, the new director for youth. Started on July 9, the young people were challenged to grow fruit and vegetables at home, to make them aware of the importance of the various stages of cultivation, to help them fight the negativity caused by the pandemic and reflect on Pope Francis' Encyclical "Laudato Sì". The final phase of the challenge recently took place with the awarding of 8 young winners who received gift vouchers.
