Salamat Farms Trust



We are "in process" of building this site. Our formal launch was scheduled for December 2014. This was delayed over a year through legal complications over our pilot scheme site. Those problems should be resolved in the very near future (2016). We apologise for the delay but there has not been much we could do about any of it. We will completely revamp this site as soon as we can. Much is changing and there is some real progress on the ground. Our area of focus is currently in the upland areas around Mariveles, Bataan, Philippines. We hope you find this site interesting and informative - we welcome constructive suggestions:
