Hardin sa Kwarantin: Ang Bungkalan sa Sitio San Roque
A Tanimang Bayan located in the heart of Quezon City business district promotes natural organic fertilizers for their community garden. Residents of Sitio San Roque and their community partners studied and experimented on making various low-cost fertilizers and cost-effective organic pesticides.
The National People’s Food Systems Summit or the NFPSS helped produce these short video documentaries. AgroecologyX Network organizes the NPFSS to generate public awareness and support for efforts to mainstream agroecology and food sovereignty in response to the United Nations’ call to transform the current food systems.
Philippine CSOs under Agroecology X believe that only a strong peoples’ movement can realize a complete shift in who controls the food systems. Only a strong peoples’ movement can tilt power relations, paving the way for the people to put power from corporate hands into those who produce food.
The summit promotes an agroecological food system anchored on genuine agrarian reform and national industrialization. A people-led and people-centric food system is the solution to the ills of the current global corporate food system that puts profit first over food security.
