Millennium Fellowship Project: Go Fresh, Go Green: A School-Farm Initiative

Enderun Colleges, a private tertiary education located in Taguig City, Philippines, is known to foster and cultivate sustainability in its operations and educational programs, which in turn build the consciousness of students to be the champions of the said initiative in their own ways. From the very start, the school has made it its mission to ensure that the promotion of sustainability is a collaborative approach that crosses boundaries; this was accomplished through various partnerships with other like-minded organizations, such as the Tuloy Foundation, Farmtop Skyfarms, and Ecole Ducasse to name a few. Furthermore, Enderun Colleges is known to be one of the top schools for Culinary with extensive program coverage, this opens the ground for establishing a self-sustaining ecosystem through the creation of a sustainable school farm from which the produce can be donated to partner organizations, communities, and the local government unit.

Additionally, the movement does not stop there, this very same school farm will be able to address multiple issues or sustainability efforts that will make this project a circular initiative. Aside from the donation of crops to the community, part of the food waste or excess generated by the culinary department, such as leafy greens, fruits, and more, will also be collected for the operation of the hydroponics farm. The waste generated will be used to create and provide nutrients for the crops to ensure their healthy growth by creating organically made nutrient solutions. With the aid of the sustainability department teachers or personnel, the fellows will learn how to make fermented juices from the trimmings of fruits, plants, and excess food waste in general, which will then be utilized for this plan or initiative. The excess solutions will then be donated to the community as well, along with the crops harvested.

Furthermore, for the creation of this sustainable farm, most of the materials used will be recycled materials. If purchases have to be made, they will be made by local farmers and businesses to ensure a circular economy within the country. All efforts in the formulation of this project are geared towards addressing multiple sustainability points or current concerns that will further showcase the strong desire of the Enderun community to make a positive social change or impact within the community and establish their firm stance towards the progression of the country and the school's operations towards sustainability. The school aims to positively influence other communities to take part in such initiatives by leading or acting as a role model and as an active doer for the purpose of the world’s advancement towards a green and sustainable future.
