This Monday a group of about 25 students from Bohol Island State University (BISU) attended a one-day Awareness Seminar at Bohol Coco Farm. It was conducted by Ej De Guzman, the integrated working farm's general manager.
The students, members of BISU's Agriculture & Fishery Technology class, were introduced to the fundamentals of organic and natural farming, including instructions on how to prepare fermented plant and fruit juices for the soil, livestock feed, and human anti-ailment consumption. Videos were also presented which made them aware of the perils of genetically modified foods.
Throughout the day, the students were provided all-natural refreshments, such as saba with coconut syrup, coco pancit, and camote tops and lemon grass iced tea. For lunch, besides the pancit canton and rice, breaded pork (from naturally-raised pig) with tartar sauce was served, as well as tinola soup with malunggay.
