Davao Oriental holds the record of having the biggest organically grown root crops in the Philippines for the 5th consecutive years. But this success isn’t just about title, it is more about how the small-scale farmers have found a very effective way to address climate change, hunger and rural poverty. And this is worth celebrating!

Thank you so much SUBANG Foundation, Benedictine Sisters, Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology, LGU San Isidro, and PCT Davao Oriental of Agro-Eco Philippines for turning this once simple initiative into a tradition.
