Students tour farms in Bontoc
by Alpine L. Killa

BONTOC, Mountain Province – Junior high school students were toured in farm tourism sites in this town in recognition of their roles in promoting tourism through social media.

The municipal government toured 50 students from the Mountain Province General Comprehensive High School (MPGCHS) who are taking photography and video production to the town’s tourist farm destinations.

Municipal Tourism Officer Caren Guinayen said this is the first time that the local government unit initiated an educational tour on farm tourism for junior high school students.

The LGU paid for the transportation, food, and entrance and environmental fees of the participants.

The activity aimed to introduce the students to different tourist sites in Bontoc, encourage them to become tourism ambassadors, and promote Bontoc as a tourist destination through the use of social media.

Guinayen said that this is also a way to promote farm tourism, which is one of the thrusts of the Department of Tourism.

She said through farm tourism, people will be encouraged to go back into farming and create a dependable source of income.

It will also be an avenue for the students to put into practice what they have learned in school considering that photography and video production is now integrated in their subject in school.

Among the sites visited were the Bontoc Dairy Farm owned by Fonet Modesto Dirige, Lanfang Farm owned by the family of Ben Ayochok, Blue Farm owned by Dan Evert and Shirley Sokoken, Khayad Orange and Dragon Fruit Plant Farm owned by Lynda Khayad, and the demo farm managed by the LGU through the Office of the Municipal Agriculturist. The participants also visited the Maligcong Rice Terraces.
