A SUSTAINABLE PARADISE IN TARANUMAN FARM

One of the eco-friendly activities in Club Paradise Palawan’s sustainability program called EcoConserve is producing its very own fresh herbs and vegetables from Taranuman Farm which are used as the ingredients to a wide variety of food served at Club Paradise’s Firefish Restaurant. 

The farm started in 2016 and since then, it yields fresh and organic vegetables like lettuce, basil, eggplant, chili pepper, mustard greens, and snow cabbage to name a few. While harvested cucumbers are used in making their famous Cucumber-Calamansi welcome drink, food scraps from the restaurant served as the organic fertilizers of the farm making it pesticide and chemical-free.

To ensure that the quality condition of the farm is maintained and improved, staff involvement activities are done in a monthly basis. This involves clean up, sowing, planting, and harvesting. In addition, they are cultivating African Night Crawlers to produce vermicast, a byproduct of the breakdown of organic matter which is an excellent and nutrient-rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner.

The future projects of the farm include bee farming, raising poultries of chickens, goats, black pigs, mud crabs, fish, and shrimps. 

Taranuman is a Cuyonon term for farm. The 13-hectare farm is located at Sitio Iniriran, Decalachao, Coron (15 minutes away from Club Paradise by boat) and supervised by its Farm Coordinator, Jetley Joy Pitogo.
