MANILA, Philippines - Most foods nowadays have not only lost the quality of being alive but are also produced in a process that creates ecological imbalance. When soil is tilled or crops are removed, the land is depleted of its minerals and subtle life forces.

There is a process called bio-dynamic agriculture where weakened life forces are revi-talized, stimulating root growth, microorganism production and humus formation. This farming method brings back like into vegetables, fruit and grains.

Learn about this method in a conference title Managing Abundance to be held Oct. 3, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at ISIP Center, 6241 Palma corner Mañalac Sts., Makati City. A field trip (optional) is scheduled for the following day at the Prado Farms in Lubao, Pampanga.
