Share Iloilo: Garin Farm

Team Dlinkers Summer 2015 is decided to be held at the countryside of Iloilo Province – at Garin Farm in San Joaquin. Our rendezvous is at Mohon Terminal in Arevalo where we can ride PUJ going to San Joaquin. Travel time is about an hour and a half.

Garin Farm is like an agritourism which aims to bring people back to nature by showing us what are the different kinds of animals we can raise and what kinds of plant we can grow for food. The place will also take you back to your faith through a little pilgrimage as you enter the biblical journey until you reach ‘heaven’. They also have facilities you can try for different activities like kayaking, ATV Ride, zipline, horseback riding and many more.

All these games aims to develop the camaraderie and teamwork of all. After the game, we had lunch at their resto – nilagpang, fried kangkong, chicken and drinks. You just have to prepare extra money because the food is a little bit pricey and the serving isn’t that generous.
