I am sorry for a long blogging hiatus. I have been assigned to coverages and press con attendance for days in a row, and I have to work on my articles in order to put sense to everything I have attended, not mentioning how many times I have to spin everything in my head and look for different several angles since I also contribute to my national paper.
Anyways, Thursday last week, Department of Agriculture of Region X toured us to their partner farms in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. This is a learning tour after our discussion last late August regarding vegetable industry and the upcoming 14th national vegetable congress that Cagayan de Oro is hosting in the mid of September.
The photos below are taken at Valley Fresh Farms. It is a farm that mainly grow bell peppers. They also have pechay, leather ferns, strawberries, flowers and many others. Their farm manager also shared to us ideas about the farm and their practices. It is just so awesome how Agriculture in our region is improving and how it provide livelihood to the folks living in their place which extend to spending for their children’s education.
