While we were conducting validation and prioritization of the different interventions for Kalinga heirloom rice farmers ranging from irrigation systems to post and pre-harvest facilities, Board Member Emilio Kitongan as Sangguniang Panlalawigan Committee Chair on Agriculture, introduced his proposed ordinance on second reading entitled:

"An ordinance institutionalizing, promoting and developing organic agriculture in the province of Kalinga, providing funds therefore and for other purposes."

We found ourselves working hand-in-hand for the revitalization of Kalinga heirloom rice, one of the most precious endowment of Kabunian to the people of Kalinga.
