Dear Cacao Friends of PDS, I have finally met the host Mr. Louie Tabing of Let’s Talk Agriculture (a radio segment at DZMM 630, powered by one of leading TV networks in the country, ABS-CBN) when we were invited to their seminar at the DA-ATI BUILDING in Quezon City.
I felt so happy to have been given the chance to present the PDS Way of Cacao Farming infront of close to a hundred participants this morning.
The crowd was so overwhelming! I felt like a Hollywood Superstar lol! My name cards were requested to have me sign an autograph on it. (wish I brought more though) 🙂
In behalf of Team PDS of Luzon Manny Carpio, Oji Reyes, Basil Bolinao, Zaldi and I, thank you so much for the warm welcome!
It was raining but it did not hamper the participants to attentively listen to our presentation. They learned the Search for Criollo, how to plant cacao, how much it will yield and who are the buyers of their harvested cacao.
I could talk for hours but it still went on overtime even after close to 2 hours of Q&As!
I am happy to have ignited the interest of our farmers who participated in the seminar.
Thank God we were invited for another guesting to the next seminar they will be hosting soon.
Kudos to our Technical Support Team, my fellow Members of the Board and to you dear cacao friend that inspite the stormy weather, your sunshine helped us share the PDS “Teach, Educate, and Learn” mantra on Cacao Farming.
Do follow us here and at our Facebook page for the date and place of the next seminar. Thank you everyone and happy planting!
MEL SANTOS, Chief Executive Director, PDS
