FEUC prides on its V-Farm Lab; welcomes BED students’ nutrition tour

In collaboration with FERN Realty, FEU Cavite (FEUC) opens its vegetable farm laboratory also known as the “V-Farm Lab” in July, 2018. The V-Farm is managed by a competent team led by FEUC’s Program Coordinator for Hospitality Management, Ms. Pamela Michelle Rivera and co-led by Mr. Ryan Gamoso, Program Coordinator for Tourism Management; both handle culinary and tour activities, respectively. Overall, the V-Farm operations is overseen by its Executive Director and Dean of Higher Education Department (HED), Dr. Marcon Espino.

The V-Farm serves as a training laboratory for FEUC’s HED students on “farm-to-table” activities as part of the institution’s relevant, innovative, and immersive development programs highlighting the CCaT framework – Culinary, Culture, and Tourism. Dedicated and able group of people, including the farmers and area caretakers, are tasked to ensure the viability of the said laboratory.

On July 31, 2018, around 100 Grades 4, 5, and 6 pupils of FEUC’s Basic Education Department went on a tour dubbed “Nutrition Month Farm Tour” at the V-Farm in celebration of the 2018 Nutrition Month with the theme “Ugaliing magtanim, sapat na nutrisyon aanihin.”

At present, there are 13 varieties of vegetables grown on the farm like bitter gourd (ampalaya), cucumber (pipino), mustard (mustasa), tomato (kamatis), bell pepper, among others. Next projects for the V-Farm include growing of herbs (putting up of herbs section) and the construction of the modern “bahay-kubo” that will serve as cooking demonstration and tasting area. Currently, HED hospitality management and tourism management students are preparing for their V-Farm Lab culminating activities in October 2018.
