Summer Solstice Edition, 2015
June Global Giving Challenge: Help Us Establish an Organic Seed Bank 
Thanks to many of you we have already raised $615 to support the establishment of an organic seed bank in the Philippines!

Why Support a Seed Bank?

  • To educate and train local farmers to save, store, and propagate seeds.
  • Ensure farmers have access to affordable and local varieties of seeds.
  • Support a community led and managed resource.
  • To store seeds which will ensure food security during droughts or other disasters. 

On June 17th all donations of $25 or greater will be matched at 20%. So mark your calendar and help rural farmers in the Philippines access the seeds to their future! 
ENCA Farm Product Highlight: Tumeric 
We are pleased to be increasing our tumeric production at ENCA Farm. Tumeric is most commonly known for its bright orange color and use in curry dishes. A member of the ginger root family, it originates from India and grows best in wet climates. Tumeric also has many other medicinal benefits including anti-inflammatory properties, help with indigestion, and extensive antioxidants. 

Our increased tumeric production is serving demand in local markets, and it's used to create fresh-ground tumeric tea. Read this article about the many benefits of tumeric!
