Seeds distribution to help Dolores recover from typhoon Hagupit

A farmer-to-farmer delivery of ecological seeds took place today in Dolores, Eastern Samar in the Philippines to help farmers regenerate agricultural land badly damaged by Typhoon Hagupit. It was the first delivery of seeds to Dolores since the typhoon made a direct hit on the town two weeks ago.

A group of farmers from the islands of Cebu, Bohol and Negros – strong movers of sustainable and ecological agriculture – came together in the spirit of 'Balaynihan' to aid fellow farmers by collecting ecologically farmed rice seeds, root crops, vegetable seeds and organic fertilizers. The seeds were today presented to 125 of the most affected farmers in Dolores.
