"Farming technique called ‘baliling’ done by the indigenous peoples of Bayyo in Bontoc, Mountain Province, Cordillera Philippines. Baliling is done by overturning the soil and creating beds after the rice cropping cycle. The beds are planted with legumes or sweet potatoes. this improves soil fertility and aeration. The canals in between maybe filled with water, an efficient irrigation system. Creating artistic patterns in the fields brings a joyful aura in the field for the farmers, and all entities that inhabit the field. This includes ancestral and nature spirits who are believed to be also sharing the space and participate in bringing about abundant harvest and balanced ecosystems." ~From "Proud to be Indigenous" Facebook page
