Goodbye, Tay Ponce

The MASIPAG family bids goodbye to Ponciano “Tay Ponce” Adornado, a farmer-leader and organic agriculture practitioner in Infanta, Quezon. He passed away last January 27, 2019 due to natural causes.

Tay Ponce was among the most prolific farmers in Luzon province, with his admirable practice in diversified farming. He also served as leader in his peoples’ organization, UFBA (Upland Farmers Bayanihan Association). In 2017, Tay Ponce was among those who represented MASIPAG in IFOAM Organic World Congress held in New Delhi, India where he shared his experience in MASIPAG farming.

We lost a great farmer and a great leader. We will miss you Tay Ponce! #
