The construction of the microfarm is part of the $100,000 research funding from the UAE government awarded to the research team for their "Revitalized Algae Micro-farm Project (REVAMP).”

MNHS research teachers Ma. Regaele Olarte, Jason Albaro, together with MNHS principal Dr. Rante Marmeto led the groundbreaking ceremony together with local officials.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi of Muntinlupa City graced the event and congratulated the research team on the milestone in their study and urged local colleges to continue innovating and pursuing science efforts that will benefit the worldwide community.

The RevAMP: Revitalized Algae Micro-farming research proposal bested more than 2,000 entries in the Global High School category for East Asia & Pacific of the international prize.

The project is planning to build a scalable local microfarm to generate high-value Green Algae (Chlorella vulgaris). It seeks to provide Chlorella cultivation with an extremely creative manner for environmental stewardship, instructional and scientific research, and livelihood opportunities.

The microfarm will serve as a research and training center for the Community Hub and off-campus. The community center is aimed at catering for the project's research and product development. It also acts as a livelihood training hub.
