“More Love for Women Farmers” aims to inspire Siargaonons to reinvigorate local agriculture with a special emphasis on empowering the island’s women. Attendees will include farmer leaders, women farmers, agricultural officers, teachers, students, and surrounding areas in Surigao del Norte.

Powerhouse women farmer entrepreneurs that will be speaking at the event include the “Dragonfruit Queen”- Edita Dacuycuy, the “Seedling Queen” – Daisy Duran, and “Multi-awarded Agriculture Change Maker” – Cherrie Atilano.

"Siargao will be the first women-led agriculture island in the Philippines", said Cherrie Atilano in a statement. "This is part of AGREA’s vision of building island economies in the Philippines that are zero hunger, zero waste, and zero insufficiency," she added.

AGREA is an innovative inclusive business based in the Island Province of Marinduque, Philippines.
