Living in the inner city of Davao like Agdao means small spaces and limited boundary lines. If your heart is not into gardening, the crowded land area of Agdao can be a great excuse for living without plants around you. However, the Hope House is different and the children who take refuge inside its spaces every other day and on weekends, testify to the possibility of growing a garden in the inner city.
For example. the Urban Container Gardening program continues to train the Agdao children to bloom where they are planted and to cultivate this garden for aesthetic and practical reasons. This is where the first batch of the vegetable juice that the Hope for the Nations staff concocted came from. If the yard is limited, praises can also be shouted from the rooftops. Regularly, the Kids of Hope assign a youth leader to go up the roof, cultivate and maintain the container plants grown there. From the sweet smelling basil and peppermint to the pungent oregano, eye-relaxing green ornamental plants and vines, come shouts of praises to the God who causes them to grow, and all the blessings that come with these wonderful plants.
