Charlene Tan created the business with a vision of a sustainable food ecology. With mostly part-time volunteers, they started out by connecting several organic farmers to restaurants in Metro Manila.
By promoting the benefits of organically-grown produce, over time, they were able to find a stable market which helped sustain the livelihood of the local farmers. This also inspired their farmers to continue their organic farming practices instead of shifting to commercial methods that involve using chemical pesticides and fertilizers.
