On a recent trip to our ICM Base in Dipolog, we met Emeliano and his wife, Salome. Salome was a member of the 1st batch Transform Program in their area, where she learned how to start an in-ground garden. She shared what she learned from the Livelihood lessons with Emeliano and he really got into it – he even enrolled himself in the next batch Transform Program. Now, with the two of them applying what they know, their garden is flourishing!
