They highlighted the benefits gained from the practice of urban gardening and ESWM such as:

• Urban gardening (UG) produces healthy food while protecting the environment in an urban area.
• UG produces healthy soil while growing healthy crops.
• UG can contribute to carbon sequestration thus help fight global warming.
• UG promotes ecological solid waste management.

They likewise encouraged the participants to learn lessons from nature; to respect life in all its forms; and to instill the values of nurturing, caring, giving and sharing. Health is wealth and wealth is health, therefore, let us heal the soil and heal our soul. Create heaven and earth through ESWM and urban gardening.
