NEWS FROM THE GRASSROOTS: Ayta IPs in San Marcelino started implementing the agriculture components of their Project Alapaan: IP CREATESS IADDA!

Photo was sent by former Municipal IPMR Jerry Dela Cruz this morning showing one of their “gahak” or traditional farm lot in Barangay Aglao, San Marcelino, Zambales. They are set to plant cash crops (gabi, ube, kamote and siling taiwan) following indigenous seasonal calendar systems. IP CREATESS IADDA as a pioneering socioeconomic framework values both the importance of mainstream approaches and the traditional practices of IPs including agriculture. This project is a convergence with the Department of Agriculture and other PRLEC members of the PJTF-ELCAC.
