Donate to our Seed Campaign!!
The use of pesticides and the influx of extractive economic development cause a severe threat to food security in the Philippines. This threat is especially serious in Benguet Province where the majority of the countries food source is produced. While the majority of indigenous farming practices in the region encourage seed saving, limited to zero access of 100% organic seeds exist in the Philippines. This lack forces organic farmers to work with synthetic or hybrid seeds that threaten the validity of their organic process and hinder their ability to practice indigenous seed saving techniques.
Your generous donation will purchase organic seeds and ensure the organic validity
of ENCA Farm Crops.
$10- 5 packs of organic seeds to plant five beds at ENCA Farm.
$25- basil, cilantro, sage, oregano, and dill seeds providing a vibrant year-round herb garden.
$35- One seed basket of popular crops, such as carrots, lettuce, bell peppers, eggplant and tomatoes. These seed baskets will supply seeds for one season and ensure consistent market sales of the most popular crops.
$50- Experimental organic seeds such as asparagus and artichoke so that ENCA can experiment with planting lesser-known crops to test their validity and market appeal.
