Help on an organic orchard farm

Bago city, Philippines



The Activity

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Help on an organic orchard farm on the island of Negros
  • Help plucking guavas, harvesting bananas, or prepare for planting and weeding
  • Learn about our natural farming techniques
  • Relax in the middle of nature
  • Duration: minimum 2 nights

DESCRIPTION

Our organic farm is near Bago City in Negros Occidental, Philippines. It used to be an abandoned piece of land which soil was unproductive. In 2008 we started converting it into an orchard planted with different kinds of fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, ornamental plants and livestock. Our goal was to bring this piece of land alive again. We now use microorganisms to restore it to its natural state of fertility. This means we can grow and nurture healthy, organic food, restore balance to the land and increase biodiversity. We aim to build a group of small farms that collaborate in producing healthy food, care for the environment and create a happy community.

We warmly welcome you to help us on our farm, share knowledge, relax in the middle of nature and learn about our culture and local farming. We will offer you a place to sleep and healthy homegrown food.

We hope to see you!

Price includes:

  • Accommodation
  • Food

Meet Mariano

Hi, my name is Mariano and I started to build this natural farm in 2008 with the goal to make it healthy again and work with it in harmony. I hope to inspire other people and create a community that has the same mindset. I would love to invite you to stay on the farm and learn about it and our methods.

We had such a splendid time on the farm of Mariano. It is a little paradise away from the standard tourist tracks. Mariano is very knowledgeable about organic farming and taught us a lot. Thanks so much for this beautiful time!

This is such a beautiful place in the middle of nature. Mariano is a great host who taught me a lot about organic farming. The place os very peaceful and surrounded by fresh fruits. A great way to escape from the standard tourist traps.
