Training on Natural Farming Technology System

with 6 comments

I had been to this kind of training in late 2010 and this is good. The trainer, Andry Lim trained under Dr. Cho, who started natural farming in Jeju Island, South Korea.

The natural farming concoctions are prepared by the participants during the training so there leaves little doubt that all methods are done right, even how to mix your own organic fertilizer and feeds. The interaction between participants, who usually came from all over the country makes for a lively exchange of insights and inspires a young apprentice in farming that he will succeed in whatever enterprise he wants, be it in veggie or livestock farming.

This will be done on October 17-22, 2011 at Tribal Mission Foundation Training Center in Tugbok, Los Amigos, Davao City.  For inquiries you may call or text Jojie at 0917.6261955.

Here comes the pigs

leave a comment »

I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. — Sir Winston Churchill, British politician (1874 – 1965)

In July 2010 we took in 4 pigs. Next comes these merry batch of 16 heads. Since then we were able to bid goodbye to three of the original four, having retained one as a breeder. They are a joy to watch, who dug like crazy and play with a coconut nut like pro soccer.

Like the goats, my son enjoys feeding them greens. They are raised naturally using a technology from Jeju Island, South Korea called natural farming. Andy Lim and Jojie Gamboa taught me concoctions that can be made right at the farm.

Grass-fed, chemical free, out in the market they are labelled organic meat.
