Felino “Leo” T. Remaneses of Mangan, Banga, Aklan is wearing few hats during his fifty-six years of existence. He is known to be an educator, industrial technologist specializing in metal and steelworks, was an Overseas Filipino Worker, and presently, a respected businessman. However, he is thriving in yet another industry: agriculture.

BANGA, Aklan – In support of the “Plant, Plant, Plant Program” of the Department of Agriculture (DA), ATI Region 6 converts the former dumpsite into a pond for tilapia growing. It is located inside the Atong Ugsaran, which is an ATI Region 6's Urban Agriculture Garden that showcases different technologies on vegetables, herbs and spices, poultry and livestock forages, and inland fish farming.
The “Masaganang Ani at Mataas na Kita” as the Department of Agriculture’s battle cry, envisions to make smallholder Filipino farmers and fisherfolks more prosperous, with the goal of doubling their incomes. Modernizing Philippine agriculture could be done with the use of relevant and innovative technologies and sustained empowerment and skills development of farmers and fisherfolks. Increasing the low income of small Filipino farmers and fisherfolk could be the key to leveling up the country's agriculture sector.
“Different but not less” – a famous line of the movie Temple Grandin. The line speaks to our tendency to compare our genetic deficiencies and physical differences. We tend to see ourselves as less than because of them.
Alexander L. Llamas is different. He looks differently. He speaks differently. He has genetic differences.
In this post we will walk you through the ‘Atong Ugsaran’, ATIng Gulayan project at ATI-RTC VI premises in support to Urban Agriculture Program. The project aims to localize food production to make food available, accessible, affordable, safe and provides additional income to urban areas.
Gardening is incredibly creative and a very rewarding hobby. Every garden is unique!
