The organic library, which is located at the 36-hectare property  Eco-Agri in Barangay Pahanocoy, in this city, is free and open to everyone who is willing to learn new technology in organic farming, said Ramon Uy Sr., president of RU Foundry Shop/Ecological and Agricultural Development Foundation.

He believed that out of school youths and communities have hidden talents that are not tapped due to poverty that’s why they want to cater them.

This library and learning center will give them a break and opportunity to succeed in life, he said. 
He said that everyone is welcome to learn in the library, especially those who are willing can learn the best practices in organic farming.

Also, the private and public sectors entered into a memorandum of agreement to extend services to out of school youths and communities in promoting organic farming and technological assistance.

The memorandum of agreement was signed by Uy; Dr. Fernando Sanchez Jr., president of University of the Philippines (UP); Dr. Romulo Sisno, president of North Negros State College of Science and Technology (NONESCOST); and Stephen Leonidas, regional director of Department of Agrarian Reform-6 (DAR-6).

The MOA will also provide communities with organic fertilizer production technology.
