Trainer's Training on Organic Agriculture and Certification

Here are some Group Pics from the Trainer's Training on Organic Agriculture and Certification, held last February 29 to March 2, 2008 at University of the Philippines, Los BaƱos, Laguna:

On the first two days, we talked about Organic Agriculture in our country, how organic fruits, vegetables and livestock should be produced, health benefits of organic food, Biodynamics, and my favorite, Agnihotra. The second day's topics were about organic certification and inspection.

On the third day, we went to visit some sites in UPLB, the photo above shows UPLB's sorghum plantation [not organic :( ]. We also visited Dr. Ted Mendoza's Odorless Hogs and his Farm. As our last activity, we went to Dr. Pamela Fernandez's beautiful garden where she practice Biodynamics and Agnihotra.
We also went to IRRI. IRRI stands for International Rice Research Institute, but to Organic Farmers it means something else... :) Ask and organic farmer if you want to know... :)

To my classmates (during the training), if you want to see more pictures, please send me you e-mail address so I can e-mail the pictures to you. my e-mail is:
