Cultivating the agricultural productivity of a Sierra Madre farm

Farming families in Brgy. Sibul, San Miguel, Bulacan now have the power to boost their development through the light they received from the social development arm of the Manila Electric Company (Meralco), One Meralco Foundation. Aside from allowing these families to have much needed light at their homes, the electricity provided via facilities extension was used to jumpstart the farm’s water irrigation system cultivating the organic agriculture livelihood in the community.

“One Meralco Foundation’s gift of electrification to the hilltop resident families of GreenEarth Heritage Foundation brought light and livelihood to our beneficiary families,” said GreenEarth Heritage Foundation executive director Mylene Matti.

“We were able to use an electric water pump which boosted productivity of our farm during the dry months. Children can study at night and not have to fear walking in the pitch darkness of our slopes. Television is now a luxury that they can enjoy,” she continued.

“Maliwanag na dito sa aming komunidad at mas masaya na rin ang mga pamilya dito lalo na ang mga bata,” said Aldrin Presas, one of the GreenEarth farmers. “Napakalaking ginhawa na mayroon na kaming kuryente dito,” he continued.

Recently, to reach more families and further cultivate the organic agriculture livelihood in GreenEarth, OMF installed an 800 watts peak solar photovoltaic (PV) system to power the drip irrigation of the farmís pilot moringa plantation of 10,000 trees. Moringa tea is one of the primary organic products of GreenEarth.

The solar PV installation was made possible with the help of One Renewable Energy Enterprise, Inc.

“We continue to support the farming families in GreenEarth because we want to contribute to the livelihood in the area,” said Meralco chief CSR officer and One Meralco Foundation president Jeffrey O. Tarayao. “We hope that this will improve their lives and benefit the future of their children and enhance their agricultural lands,” he added.
