Penalosa Farm

Each time I visit the Penalosa Farm in Victorias City, it is always a different experience.  It is always a work in progress.  

Iti has been appointed by the Agricultural Training Institute as one of the agri-farm training centers in Negros Occ. along with Mr. Ramon Uy's Eco-Agri Farm and Chinchin Uy's  and Fresh Start Organic Farm.

The 'Balai-balai' can accommodate up to 55 persons who come for trainings and seminars on organic farming under Mr. Ramon Penalosa, Jr.

This could be your vegetable garden too!

At the foreground of this gazebo are plots of green onion leaves.  The gazebo is where he holds his trainings and lectures while you sip a cup of hot 5-leaf tea which is also Mr. Penalosa's concoction.

This is one of the latest addition to their model farm.  This 7 sqm vertical garden would use up to 50 sqm of land when planted tradionally.

These are recycled canvasses that are used as pots for the lettuce.

How to get there:

This is located in Victorias City, Negros Occidental.  Coming from Bacolod City, when you reach Lopue's Dept. Store, take the left road.  About 150m, you will reach a tall steel gate on the left, honk your horn and you shall be opened and led to the integrated farm of Mr. Ramon Penalosa.
