Sir G’s purpose driven Agriculture

Food security has always been a favorite topic, before and most especially after people in Southern Leyte experienced the devastation caused by super typhoon Odette. One corporate person, turned gentleman farmer, took agriculture by heart and stepped forward.
Glindo “Glinx Amir” Mira invested his time and resources to an integrated farm a few years before the Covid pandemic. With hard work and unwavering passion, his endeavor led to success despite varying challenges. Now, he has accepted 20 students to actively train in his farm. And in his message to Southern Leyte Times and his Facebook page he said, “I am willing to share my story to inspire others, to give awareness that agriculture is a noble and diverse profession. That we need food to sustain life.”
“It’s the best feeling in the world when you’re able to share your passion and knowledge to the youth and other sectors of society about agriculture. I never thought I could build a training center this early stage of my farming journey. Ung sabi ko ayaw ko muna, will concentrate sa production. Then I realized my “why,” and the reason for this is to develop a new generation of farmers.”
“This center will house scholars of today and in the future who are eager to learn organic farming and maybe one of them will make impact in our society, especially in the area of food security.”
Glindo, an active member of the Southern Leyte Chamber of Commerce, is proud of his first 24 scholars of Produce Organic Concoctions and Extracts. He is thankful to Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Provincial Training Center Southern Leyte for their support, and also to all who are with him in this journey.
