One of the ventures I would say is viable in the Philippines is going self sufficent this is based on the fact the Philippines is a food basket in the way it naturally can produce food but many things are under utilised such as you will see coconut plantations which have nothing else growing there yet it could be using a mixed crop to maximise the area. The islands are full of springs that crop up naturally yet the water isn’t harnessed for anything useful yet in many cases it doesn’t even need pumped as its just overflowing from the springs. I have been collating information for over 2 years and willing to share the information as I see Permaculture and Aquaculture being the future in farming as it works with the land instead of against it. Mono cropping is not only damaging to land it often doesn’t make any sense as it crashes the prices on certain materials to suit big consumers of them such as the furniture industry yet the farmer misses out. As a foreigner in the Philippines myself I believe the way the world is going down the toilet fast due to oil prices and countries mismanaging economies that moving away from a purely reliant system on government and supermarkets to at least producing 30% if not more of your own produce is the way forward.
