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.

  2. Dear, Sir / Maa'm

    This is Mr. Julien Roble Certified Coconut Sugar'' Trainer

    We conduct seminars about Organic Coconut Sugar Making - Package Seminar
    ( for Outreach Progarm /Business / livelihood Program for the Farmers / Womens within rural areas of Cebu Province )

    "The science of today is the technology of tomorrow."
    '' best OPPORTUNITY '' go organic ways ''

    Coconut sugar (also known as coco sugar, coconut palm sugar or coco sap sugar) is a sugar produced from the sap of cut flower buds of the coconut palm. ( Sugar made from ''coconut sap / crystal tuba )

    Coconut sugar comes in crystal or granule form, block or liquid. It is essentially a two-step process. It starts with harvesting or "tapping" the blossoms of a coconut tree. Farmers make a cut on the spadix and the sap starts to flow from the cut. The sap is then collected in bamboo containers. The sap collected is then transferred into giant woks and placed over moderate heat to evaporate the moisture content of the sap. The sap is translucent and is about 80% water. As the water evaporates, it starts to transform into a thick syrup-like substance known as a "toddy". From this form, it is further reduced to crystal, block or soft paste form, or it remains in this form. Essentially, coconut sugar's form depends on the moisture content of the toddy.

    The Glycemic Index of coconut sugar is 35 and is classified as a low glycemic index food. It is considered to be healthier than refinedwhite sugar(60) and brown sugar(64).It can be used as a 1:1 sugar substitute for coffee, tea, baking, and cooking.

    Thank you for considering my request. I look forward to your positive response.
