Farmcradle Balungao just opened its barn doors to students and community members who are interested in learning all about the ins and outs of farming in our Summer Jobs Program.
What will you expect to learn?
Through this summer job, you’ll learn how a big farm operates. You’ll get exposed and have hands-on experience with goats, chickens, and cattle, and learn how to take care of them. There are also activities that involve organic farming and vermiculture.
If you are put in admin duties, you’ll learn how to take account of the activities in the farm. You’ll learn how to manage groups and individuals, and make sure the farm is running smoothly.
