I am so sick today! I have a runny nose and a dry cough and it’s killing me. It’s a good thing I have some plants on our windowsill , which helps me to breath some fresh air, and makes me yearn to have a huge garden that have lots of plants everywhere. I miss living in our province in Tarlac, I miss my fave dish – Pinakbet which is cooked by my Aunt. I miss living in an rural place where people sleep as early as 8PM and that all the kids plays outside during the day. How I wish just like me, Ren will also experience running in an open field, climbing mango trees and swimming in a lake with the duck (hehehe)
Last Thursday, I had the chance to visit a wonderful farm managed by Mr. Jun Saret, which is named the Leonie Agri Corporation or LAC Farms which lies at the foot of the Sierra Madre mountains in the town of Sta. Rosa in Nueva Ecija.
When we arrived at the place, the first thing I have noticed is the bible verses on every street of the farm. I also saw lots of medicinal plants in the area and a very cozy office of the President ( a hut with a cozy swing on it).
LAC Farms produces organic Lagundi plants which is the primary ingredient of the first herbal cough medicine in the country (more on that on my parenting blog). At LAC, God’s gift – nature – is fully maximized and utilized. The farming process of Lagundi leaves and vegetables are an organic cycle, which means there are no pesticides or chemicals used to grow them.
They dedicated the farm to God since it was transformed from being ” a curse land” to a “blessed and fruitful land”. The 42 hectares land was once acidic and now with the help of some farmers, the land is now fertile and became “a promised land”.
I hope there will be an organic market near us, so that I will have a weekly supply of natural/organic vegetables everyday.
The organic vegetables of LAC is available at SM Megamalls.
