As more people came to the Bel-Air site, the time soon came for Urban Farmers PH to expand to reach a wider audience. Thankfully the organization, through FBDC, was given access to and the responsibility for managing an unused lot in Bonifacio Global City. Since March 2022, the organization has been the steward of the 1500 sqm lot that has attracted not only customers but native pollinators and birds.

The BGC Community Farm was able to transform this otherwise unassuming empty lot into a productive farm that opens opportunities for ecological succession and agritourism. The heart of this transformation lies in the participation of volunteers – professionals and individuals from different fields.

The BGC Community Farm currently holds Farming 101 Workshops and engages the local community through a pick-and-pay experience that allows visitors to harvest fresh, pesticide-free produce. The site is also open for event reservations and private dinners. All proceeds from these activities go back into operations.
