More to Sea

One of the reasons why I love to stay at D-SHEP FARM is because of the sea side "jogging route". The scenery is simply adorable considering that there is not much to "see but more to sea." I always look forward to the different hues of the sunset. They constantly change every single day.

New year Celebration at D-SHEP Farm

We decided to share the new year's celebration with DSFA faculty and staff along with their children plus kids from the nearby communities. 
Here's what we did for the preparation. Unfortunately, our FZ1000 can't shot under low-light conditions to show the actual party.
 Jen wrapped the posts with red and green crepe paper
 Jeishan got busy with the "pabitin"
Everyone in D-SHEP FARM did their part in preparation for the grand night.

A large projector screen was put up by Lito plus a swing made of tires and bamboo.

Welcome to D-SHEP FARM!

This is my first progress report as of January 2, 2016!

Why put up and invest in D-SHEP FARM?
To provide a stable business venture to support the financial requirements of D-SHEP FOUNDATION ACADEMY and provide decent jobs to its nearby community.

Entrance to the farm.  The farm is located within Sta. Lucia II, Receiving, Sablayan Occidental Mindoro. It’s a 10-minute walk from D-SHEP FOUNDATION ACADEMY. 
D-SHEP was about to sell this 1.6 hectare land which belonged to the late our teacher, Mr. Hallasgo. So on June 1, 2015, we decided to take over the vacant lot and start developing it through the help of our caretaker, Mr. Lito Masculino, matagal na kakilala naten since the birth of DSFA.

Growth in its initial stage

Hopefully gumanda panahon ng husto. We are not affected by drought because we recently installed a pump “patubigan”.
I miss to see a morning dew ever since we transferred to Cainta, Rizal in 2004.

Weeds Growing

Lito will plant the ideal crops by the end of the first week of January. So far, he already planted Corn (ang sarap kagabi we boiled ‘em), then peanuts, plus kamoteng kahoy. Ideally, cassava din sana para we can use it to make chicken feeds.

Sobrang sarap ng nilagang corn na ito kahit maliliit palang. Imagine if we have many of these and malalaki. The growth success depends on the caretaker, kung paano sya mag apply ng fertilizer sa tamang timing… Hindi pwede basta basta apply lang. Unfortunately, the recent storm affected the crops kaya sila maliit ngayon.
