To improve their respective programs on farming and other livelihood projects, Richie Ordoñes, Jeffrey Abuan and Almerson Bernardino of SHEC Eco Farms attended a seminar entitled AgriLINK, FoodLINK, AquaLINK--Sustainable Food Production: Focus on the Filipino Market which was held at the World Trade Center, Metro Manila last October 8, 2009.

Tree Planting at Bulacan
Last October 24, 2009, the SHEC staff headed by Fr. Dexter Prudenciano and Fr. Orville Cajigal together with Rogationist Postulants planted mahogany trees at SHEC, Bulacan. Planting trees is indeed a good way of preserving Mother Earth which is envisioned in the Bible as humanities’ final destiny.

Refreshed and Empowered
After a semester of hard work for the Kingdom, SHEC staff and volunteers sought to be refreshed and empowered through a retreat which was held at Badoc, Ilocos Norte last Oct. 26-30, 2009. The retreat was facilitated by Zacarias G. Damo, Jr. who shared on the forgotten core themes of the Bible, namely justice, history and total salvation.
