Gardening enthusiasts, be ready as these two events will rock Cebu! As far as my knowledge is concern, there has been no organized and known group here where we can get a first hand knowledge about farming and gardening, the organic and natural farming to be specific. So enlist yourself and we might bump each other on these two events:

Natural Farming is a modern and ecological alternative to the pesticide-laden agriculture. Natural Farming is producing food for human life and health by working with the nature, closely following the law of nature. It is a process of merging human wisdom and labor with the nature elements: sunlight, air, soil and water.
