2019 Regional Award for Organic Agriculture under the Farming Family Category

Spread the love

This is a story of Sonia Estrella, a very ‘down to earth’ small-scale farmer living in a remote but beautiful island of Bucas Grande, Surigao Del Norte who never thought that she would win an award for organic agriculture. Sonia is earning an average of Php 1,500.00 a day, three times higher than a salary of a regular employee in the city, by diversifying her farm and selling her own produce directly to their store. Such system creates regular income among the members of the family and provides the consumers with fresh and affordable products. Congratulations! Sonia for winning the 2019 Regional Award for Organic Agriculture under the Farming Family Category. You are an inspiration to the millions of Filipino farmers. Although Organic Agriculture was not mentioned during the recent SONA of the President, instead the Rice Tariffication Law and ‘modern’ agriculture were emphasized. But this does not deter the will of the increasing no. of organic farmers from moving forward and changing the playing field. The case of Sonia is definitely one of the best examples happening on the ground.#Agroecology#ProjectAFFIRMED#AgroEcoPhilippines
