Last August 8, 2020 a group of IPs from Sitio Katandungan, Marilog District, Davao City led by Mr. Phillips Somozo travelled to Datu Henry Binahon’s Organic Farm at Lantapan Municipality, Bukidnon to learn Organic Farming.
This group together with their President , Datu Felimon Campong wanted to convert their denuded ancestral lands into Organic Farms. ESSA members and ESSA graduates of Inner Conditioning Workshops were able to establish a network in helping and supporting each other in promoting and realizing ESSA’s objective for towards Sustainable Agriculture and addressing Climate Emergency. The fruitful visit and learning at Binahon Agroforest Farm hope to guide and motivate the farmer participants to shift from chemical farming to Organic Farming.
This activity in Mindanao Cluster initiated by Mr. Phillips and Mr. Binahon was an inspiring event despite the restrictions and health protocols imposed in different Municipalities. ESSA cluster members keep on working and connecting each other on what possible initiatives to continue promoting Sustainable Agriculture.
