Watch for the March 2018 Agriculture Magazine. Featured on the cover are PWDs who make Sunshine Farm in Tiaong, Quezon, bloom. Julio P. Yap Jr. wrote the story that is so inspiring because persons who have disabilities have discovered their abilities. Instead of PWDs, they are now called PWAs or People with Abilities.
The flower farm is in Tiaong, Quezon, along the highway. It is a project of Rhodora Palomar-Fresnedi whose advocacy is to help PWDs discover their talent, this time in growing sunflowers. She is also a floral designer and is making growing sunflower a money-making project so that not only 10 but more differently-abled men and women can be employed. At present, about ten are regularly working in the farm.
Many other interesting and inspiring success stories are featured in the March 2018 issue. A memoir item features Reynaldo Ramos, who in 2011, achieved his biggest ever sale of onion worth P1,290,000 that he harvested from an 8,000 square meter parcel that he rented for P5,000. You’ll read the reasons how he made that big sale.
You will also read the story of Mark Mercado who makes money plowing other people’s farms with his brand new Branson tractor. There’s also a new Super Tall hybrid corn that is perfect for making silage.
Agriculture Magazine is the most widely circulated magazine of its kind in the country. It is available in bookstores and outlets of Manila Bulletin nationwide.
