This is how the plot looked in its original state.
It is located at Southern Luzon, approximately a few hours drive from Manila. The area has a mild and cool climate at an elevation above 400 masl.
The plot is full of banana plants “señorita” variety, Liberica coffee trees that are about 30 years old, and some fruiting pineapple plants.
I learned that Filipino style farming is very dependent on nature.
There is no irrigation and no use of fertilizer. The farmers just plant their crops and leave everything to nature
It was wild and unkempt, but I chose it anyway.
