Organic Farming Seminar by Gil Carandang

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…

  1. 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!=)

  4. 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.

  5. karshaar… we at organicmanila are doing something like a CSA, helping farmers get a better price for their produce. i would love to get your inputs about the XSA over coffee. thanks
