Hi Flaming Veganites!
How's everything going?
It's been quite a while since I last dropped by mostly because I'm caught up in a very physically intensive project which I started just last December 2012. I call it the
Danny Garcia Papaya Project 2013 (Click for more details)
The aim of the project is to plant 1000 Papaya trees in a 16,000 square meter lot that we own here in Lipa City Philippines.
Now some of the time I spend is dedicated to writing, of course and to trying to learn as much as I could about how to plant them papayas. Most of my research and education is done on the Internet and on youtube.com.
The reason I wrote this blog post frankly, is because - we need help.
Any type of help is appreciated, if you'd like, you could even take a look at the place here in the Philippines with the address of Virginia's Garden #546 Purok 7, Barangay Tangway Lipa City, Batangas Province, Philippines
I'd personally welcome you and even treat you to a free cup of the ever famous Batangas Barako coffee.
Farming is a capital intensive endeavor that I'd like to pursue despite all the difficulties. What can I say? It's backbreaking, dirty, unglamorous but definitely honest work.
We already have a headstart in procuring the seeds from the EastWest Seed Company at the Filipinas Agri Planters Supply, Inc. in Quezon City. It was only later on that I found out that there were seeds nearby at a fertilizer dealership in Barangay Sabang, Lipa City. Chalk up the expenses to experience.
As much as I can, I want to do things organically - or at least how I understand "organic" to be.
So for that, we're planning on using vermicompost as fertilizer. I've dabbled with them nightcrawlers before, but keeping them inside their containers has been a great challenge.
Another great hurdle that I have to bypass is the sheer amount of wild vegetation that has overgrown the land. I work hard, yes, but the amount of wild trees that have to be cut down and grass that need to be controlled is just overwhelming.
So, anyway, that's it. Most of the other details could be found on my blog over at Resort-Ville.com.
Thank you for the time and please do contact me if you have any questions on the matter.
