The total sales of the five-day, 16th Negros Island Organic Farmers’ Festival and 1st Terra Madre, held at the Capitol Grounds in Bacolod City was recorded at P2.7 million, disclosed Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday.

Lacson said that he considers the event successful, noting that it helped a lot of farmers to sell their products. “We will continue to support it,” he stressed.

While there is no discussion yet who will host the organic festival next year, Lacson said he wants Negros Oriental for the hosting.

“I can ask Negros Oriental if they are ready to host it. To get them really interested and look forward to this yearly event,” the governor said.

During last Sunday’s closing rites, the Negros Oriental booth was recognized as the winner in the Processed Category, while the town Pontevedra booth won the Fresh Category.

Hearty’s Urban Garden of Maria Corazon Acaba was the winner in the Plant, Herb, and Ornamentals category, while the SFC Capiz booth of Francis Erika Lim won the festival’s Arts and Crafts Category.*
