Women farm in Mendez

Situated in Mendez Cavite is a 1.2 hectare coffee orchard owned by St. Scholastica’s College which they rehabilated in 1997 after twenty years being idle. It has been transformed into what is now famously known as Women and Ecology Wholeness Farm which started its operations in 1998.

St. Scholastica’s Institute of Women’s study saw the basic similarity between women and the environment. Both have been reduced to mere resources or objects and between the struggle for gender equity and the search for environmental integrity.

In our country most women especially in the marginalized areas have experienced abuse. Nature on the other hand can be compared to mothers who unconditionally and tirelessly give in to their husbands’ and children’s needs. Both women and nature are being exhausted by today’s society.

The Women and Ecology Wholeness Farm or Ecofarm demonstrates an alternative lifestyle that is environmental-friendly, junk-free and sustainable, the institute practices organic, bio-diverse farming and ecological, biogas waste management. They also practice the use of solar panel heater.
