With the ease of farming he introduces and the chain reaction which results from it, there are several impacts which are beneficial to surrounding communities:
1. More people take part in urban farming, which means there are more green areas in cities. This will cause higher absorption of pollution.
2. Less waste because food waste and waste from trees are reused in the form of fertilizer to make the trees grow fruits.
3. Urban farming has improved the ability of people to create a business where they can grow and sell the result from the plants (i.e. vegetables, fruits, herbal medicine, etc.)
4. Urban farming has allowed some people to be more self-sufficient and better able to produce for several ingredients of food or medication.
Additionally, instead of having new staff, Pak Sony chooses to educate key people in communities so that they can be the agent of change for urban farming within their own environments where they reside. He also collaborates with several local governments to spread awareness.
Finally, many people trust Pak Sony's methods, so they also come to Rumah Sopan to purchase the farming supplies or the trees, which results in high revenues for the business from the sales.
This innovation has helped various communities make their environment greener. A greener environment will then cause the greenhouse effect to take place, which will reduce air pollution. This also has reduced the food waste going to the trash or rivers. As a result, people start to reuse other waste such as plastic to be used as planting supplies or even furniture. This is an entry for Pak Sony to share people awareness about other green projects like ecobricks, etc.
Separately, some areas have experienced monetary and/or health benefits via producing vegetables/fruits and then either consuming or selling them.
