According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), at least 25% of the remaining terraces in the Cordillera are now abandoned and the indigenous culture of community rice production is disappearing.

The ADOPT A TERRACE Program is an intervention initiative to address this crisis through the farmers associated with the Cordillera Heirloom Rice Project. Your donation of US$100 or P5000 to the Adopt-a-Terrace program will help project participants reclaim abandon terraces lands. It will allow farmers to:

  • Reclaim terraces that have been abandoned due to lack of labor or the capital needed to pay for labor;
  • Increase available farmland and augment farmers’ income by increasing production;
  • Reclaim family land that has been pawned;
  • Begin farming in their own right.

For more information on adopting a terrace, please download our Adopt-a-Terrace brochure.
