All the programs of CARD-BDSFI relating to agriculture and environment is part of one program. The technologies formulated in the Luntiang Bukid ni Inay will be used in all the communities and farms being assisted by the Agri-Enterprise Development Program. CARD-BDSFI will continue to learn from the Jollibee Group Foundation /CRS/ NLDC model, positioning its function on community organizing, agricultural facilitation and subcontracting of agri inputs.

Luntiang Bukid ni Inay became open to all CARD MRI members to highlight the importance of organic farming in 2014. Trainings are regularly conducted about organic farming in partnership with CARD-MRI Development Institute, Inc. (CMDI).

Also in coordination with CMDI, a modular form of livelihood training was launched in Laguna areas. Members were given bamboo planning materials so that they can grow the grass and eventually create bamboo handicrafts as a livelihood. This project is called the “Kawayanan ni Inay”.
