Imagine looking out on the historic rice terraces of the Cordillera and seeing a thriving, working landscape— a landscape where the indigenous farmers are using their traditional knowledge and expertise to build a sustainable and culturally appropriate economic enterprise.
The Cordillera Heirloom Rice Project is making a difference in the lives of high-elevation terrace farmers. By building a development project in partnership with the farmers, it has helped them recognize and value their indigenous resources, skills, and knowledge.
Journey with us as we continue this groundbreaking work. We need your financial support to carry out our mission. Your charitable donation of any amount will help ensure that the farmers are prepared to become equal partners in this economic opportunity.
We need your support to create a market demand for this wonderful and delicious rice. Please check out Eighth Wonder’s Products Store for online purchases, current store listings and regional distributors. Request your local food cooperatives and natural food stores to carry these unique heirloom grains.
Help these indigenous people build their own bridge to the 21st century.
