Randi,

it became great your place! I love your house too!

How about the neighboring properties you mentioned earlier. Are they still not used by the neighbors and maybe for sale?

Hi!

Is it too late to join the conversation?

I'm from Liloan, Cebu and currently working in Cebu city.

The past few days though led me to research about farming. I don't have a farm land yet but I'm in the "search mode" especially if they're just less than 2 hours away from home.

I've been inspired by my friend's calamansi and onion, but I'm also looking at cacao and other high value perennial crops.

I'm a bit overwhelmed of the things that I'm learning about farming, but I'll do it just one day at a time.

I hope I'll learn more here.

Good job on the house Randi! Nindot jud puyan.

Maybe one of these days I'll also be able to walk around your property.

Thanks!

Hi Randi

I'm planning on traveling to Cebu with my 5 children and a girlfriend with one child to do some sightseeing, volunteering, and we have a special interest in permaculture.

If you have time, we would love to see your place while there.

Please let me know if this is possible.

Thank you.

A great year 2023 to everyone. Hope everyone is doing good. As of for me, I am still on my permaculture journey. So far progress, though slow, has been very good. Learning from mistakes and discovering new methods and ideas. I would like to share some of the photos of the farm and some progress.

Thanks for the update! I enjoyed seeing all your photos from your inspiring project!

Can I ask, what kind of animals or other pressures are you protecting the trees in the "tree nursery" pictures from with the big net? I don't know much about ecology in the Philippines, but I'm interested.

Hi there L. Johnson. So far we don't have wild animals that are threat to plants. it is just better to keep the young trees under a bit of shade so they will not be stressed, thus growth is faster, ready for outplanting at the open field.

It also protects the seedlings from neighbor's chickens and goats. :D

You are welcome. It is my pleasure to share progress of the farm. :)

The pictures look great, especially the nipa hut!

I'm inspired by your progress. I hope I can also make my dream farm come true.

Please keep us updated. Thank you! :-)

Anyone looking for a farm lot for permaculture? I have a friend who is selling his 6.7 hectare land in Aloguinsan, Cebu. It has a river and a waterfalls. Please DM me for more information.
Here is the Instagram link of the site.
