If you are a regular on this blog, you know I love the stuff that Gil Carandang and all of the folks over at Herbana Farms bring to market. I first ran across Gil at the Greenbelt market behind United Supermarket some 12+ years ago, and I have been a fan since. Gil is giving a seminar on organic farming and since quite a few readers have over the years expressed an interest, I was more than happy to put this post to plug Gil’s seminar…
Technological Trends in Organic Farming
by Gil Carandang
January 31 to February 1, 2009
2-day Hands On Training
P4,000 seminar fee
Km. 59, Bgy. Burol, Calamba City, Laguna
8am to 5pm
Please email rtgon@yahoo.com if you have any questions or would like to make a reservation to attend the seminar. Now if only I didn’t have a black thumb, I really should attend one of these seminars myself. :)

    I heard so much about this guy from your blog and if I am not mistaken he is your vegetable guy in either Market Market or in Salcedo.=)

    Is there some place else he might be selling his produce here in Makati during the weekdays???? Also do you think some supermarkets in Makati carry organic vegetables?

    I am kinda thinking of adding organic veggies in my diet as well as my family.=)

    Thanks MarketMan!=)

    Best of luck to the farmers with their projects. I was a member for many years of a large CSA (community-supported agriculture) programme in San Diego, and greatly enjoyed the variety and quality of the produce (fruits, vegetables, and flowers), especially if there was something in our box that was new. Our farmer included a page of recipes for new varieties.
