San Isidro 2019 Huertos ecológicos

Una fiesta tradicional ya en INEA en honor al legado de san Isidro. Un santo del siglo XI, patrón de los agricultores, que transmite al hombre y a la mujer de hoy un mensaje que va más allá de las labores del campo.

Xavier Jesuit School Vegetable Garden Thriving

The 2017-2018 academic school year began just over a month ago at the Xavier Jesuit School in Sisophon Cambodia. This year, we welcomed two more Grade 7 classes on top of the Grade 8 class to our secondary school. The school year began on the 16th of October 2017 and as part of the curriculum, each high school grade has two hours of Agriculture Classes a week scheduled into their weekly time-table.

It has only been just over a month and the vegetable garden is thriving. They are almost readied for harvesting. Each class is assigned three to four rows of garden-bed and they get to plant the vegetables and herbs of their choice.

Building and sustaining an eco-agri farm in a forest catchment

This eco-agriculture initiative takes place in an upland area in Sitio Bendum, an upland village in northern Mindanao in the Philippines.  Bendum, as the area is more commonly referred to, is also the ancestral domain of the indigenous Pulangiyen community. The eco-agriculture farm is located in lower Pangamu, in a cleared land area or lubas.  The vegetable farm is now expanded from 2 hectares to 2.5 hectares and is in a sloping land with closer access to the water supply.  The whole farm area used to be a migrant community farm planted with a high yielding corn variety that was applied with chemical fertilizers and left the soil degraded.
