Rowena Gonnay speaking at conference in India

Farmers share experiences in developing organic fertilizers from indigenous materials

Project farmers Rowena Gonnay and Jimmy Lingayo were invited by the Deshpande Foundation’s Centre for Social Entrepreneurship in Hubli, India to speak on a panel at a development conference entitled “ Leveraging Opportunities”.  Their participation helped develop their confidence as community leaders and reinforced their belief that the farmers of the Cordillera can once again make traditional rice and the terraces culturally and economically relevant to a younger generation of farmers.
