Organic farming is an alternative agricultural system which originated early in the 20th century in reaction to rapidly changing farming practices. It promotes the sustainable health and productivity of the ecosystem. With the Philippines as an agricultural land, the organic farming economy is now booming and is very much talked about in the market.
Agriculture is not just about cultivation of land but cultivation of human beings.

This would also nurture resilient farming and fishing communities as a foundation of a sustainable and inclusive economy.
