Villar Sipag Foundation welcomed selected secondary school heads Cristina M. Austria, Gina Marie Pinza, Cecille Papa, Bernadette Sumagui, Flor dela Rosa, Lenie Oliveros and TLE teachers of Silang, Cavite thru Benjamin Javier, Cavite Coordinating Officer of Villar Sipag.
The visit aimed to strengthen farm schools in the municipality in creating farming opportunities leading to good sources of income and reintroduce farming.
“Ang gusto ni Senator Cynthia [Villar]ay matutong magtanim ang mga tao sa bakanteng lote sa lugar nila at huwag umasa sa mga farmers,” said Sir Kiko, tour guide in Villar Arts and Museum.
The event lasted half-day from Villar Sipag Farm School, Villar Sipag Arts and Museum, Villar Sipag Coco Coir and Villar Sipag Recycling Area which turns plastic wastes into school chairs and was sealed with a lunch in Villar Sipag Hall.
The visitors learned many aspects of the program from the business side of farming, turning waste into income and creating a system alleviating poverty where family and community work together for a brighter future. (Shella B. Javier, Teacher II,Munting Ilog NHS)
