Tara Farms is the first permaculture site of our Laguna leg. Founded in the 1970s by the Sandoval Family, the farm is now managed by Paulo Sandoval (a 3rd generation Sandoval) of the Nu Wave Farmers together with his uncle, and also organic pig raiser and chef, OJ Gomez.
The permaculture site serves as the home base for "Baeboys" and venue for the Farmers' Field School for sustainable pig production of the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI). Tara Farms is also home to the Nu Wave Farmers, an agri-youth movement co-founded by Paulo.
Tara Farms will host a permaculture design certificate (PDC) course in November in cooperation with the Philippine Permaculture Association as a prelude to the 2nd National Philippine Permaculture Convergence to be held in UPLB.
