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.
