The CEF-Sinag Eco Center is the latest among the eco-centers started by Annie Guerrero, which was inaugurated October last year. Built through the support and determination of Guerrero, president and founder of Cravings Group of Companies and Culinary Arts Foundation and chair of Zero Waste Philippines Inc., the center hosts a variety of livelihood and eco-friendly projects.
Once a dumpsite and tricycle-jeepney terminal, the CEF-Sinag Eco Center now hosts vegetable plots that employ organic farming techniques, a composting site, reusable and recyclable materials area, and even a small bee farm.
The workshop is limited to 30 participants. Call 4261338 or 9253969; visit www.cefmanila.com.
