Permaculture Farm Project

In 2004 Unahi Mindanao commenced the first experimental permaculture farm in Misamis Oriental in the Philippines.

The focus of the project is on soil restoration, housing, animal buildings, livestock, water conservation. sloping agricultural land technology (Slope contouring) and green manure cropping. Micro-organism technology is a key feature of the project, improving and replenishing the microbial activity in the soil. Animals like pigs and chickens were chosen for their, great source of manure, and edibility.

All fertilizer used is organic, non chemical and completely natural.

Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments. It is a philosophy and an approach to land use which weaves together micro-climate annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management and human needs into intricately connected productive communities. The word itself comes from Permanent agriculture and permanent culture. On one level permaculture deals with plants, animals, buildings, and infrastructures (water, energy, and communications.) However, it is not about these elements themselves but rather the relationship we can create between them by the way we place them in the landscape.

Permaculture is based on the observation of natural systems, and modern scientific and technological knowledge

Weather we are producers or consumers of food, our future is linked to its source---the earths diminishing natural recourses. Permaculture focuses on positive solutions: how we can design sustainable human settlements and take control of our lives again.

Unlike other modern agricultural systems, permaculture has been placed squarely on the shoulders of ecology - the study of inter-relationships and interdependence of living things and their environment. The result is a new way of sustaining and enriching life without environmental and social degradation.
