GIFA member and seaweeds caretaker Robert Perol Sr. shows off the planted seaweeds for the techno demo farm in Green Island Bay.
ROXAS, PALAWAN – It was a hopeful experience for the Green Island Fisherfolk Association (GIFA) after the first batch of the Green Island Bay techno demo farm’s harvest has successfully brought positive returns.
GIFA, one of the beneficiaries of the Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP) under Global Environment Facility (GEF), started planting in early 2018 with 500kg of seedlings with five modules for their nursery but was unfortunately damaged from sea turtles and unfavorable weather condition.
