Through meeting people whom we wouldn’t normally encounter in our daily lives, we can develop greater empathy towards those who were born into less fortunate circumstances, learn about their culture, and find hope and inspiration in their strength.
The Philippines holds a world of potential for farming and agriculture yet still imports large amounts of agricultural goods. The Enchanted Farm aims to maximize our country’s resources and forward agriculture as a means to enrich lives.
Discover the First Farm-Village-University
The GK Enchanted Farm is the first Farm-Village-University in the world. It has hectares of lush farmland tended to by hardworking farmers, a community of cheerful and welcoming families, and a school for bright young social entrepreneurs.
Through MAD Travel's Sustainability & Hope Farm Tour, you can discover the hopeful stories of the GK Enchanted Farm community with the world. Each guest’s visit helps support the community-driven social enterprises as well as inspires new ones. Already, the Farm has incubated more than 20 social enterprises which have created products ranging from cheese to peanut butter, stuffed toys to tours. The Farm has also built its own university for the rising poor, SEED, the School for Experiential and Entrepreneurial Development.
Here's what to expect when you join the inspiring and uplifting tour to unleash the genius of the Filipino countryside.
