Natural Farming is a modern and ecological alternative to the pesticide-laden agriculture. This system brings the soil and environment back to its original form where the nature works for the production of its needs. 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.

The authorities of Natural Farming Andry K Lim, Gil Carandang and Warren Tan will give the lectures.

So this is our chance now Cebuanos to learn from the experts and propagate this advocacy.

See you around! Cant wait to meet new acquaintances and forge netwrok and communities of natural and organic farming enthusiasts here in Cebu.
