MARIPAZ GODINEZ is featured on the cover of the August 2013 issue of Agriculture Magazine which will soon be off the press.
Maripaz is posing with a vertical grow bag which is brimming with a lush growth of lettuce ready for making into fresh salad.
The picture was taken at the Costales Nature Farms in Majayjay, Laguna, during the tour of the farm by members of the Philippine Horticultural Society headed by Dorie S. Bernabe.
Among the features in the August issue is a showcase of 21 new lettuce varieties in La Trinidad, Benguet.
There is also a story on a weekend farmer who established a nature, agri-tourism and rabbit farm in Baliuag, Bulacan.
There is also the story of a former OFW who saved his dollars so he can buy 18 hectares of rice land in Nueva Ecija where he is growing hybrid rice now.
Agriculture Magazine is the most widely circulated magazine of its kind in the Philippines. It is distributed in bookstores as well as in the outlets of the Manila Bulletin nationwide.
