March 2010 – We are now on the process of legalizing our group. To do this we were able to invite and organize some selected individuals whose interests and values are the same with what we envisioned our group to be.  Our Articles of Cooperation and Constitution and By-Laws were finalized and have them signed by the original cooperators and interim Board of Directors. To secure our finances temporarily, Ms. Merlita Guipo and Fr. Ernesto Bendita opened a saving account in BPI Gensan with deposits coming from the initial shares of the original cooperators and their membership fees. Hopefully, by the end of  April 2010, we would be able to pay and raised P250,000.00 as our paid up capital. Meanwhile Ms. Felicitas Jaque intensifies her campaign for membership and Ms. Merlita Guipo explores the possibility of looking for sources of funds in addition to our membership fee and share capital contributions. Fr. Greto Bugas as a General Manager tries to consolidate all the possible networks and linkages of the Agri-Green considering his working experiences with the POs and NGOs.  Same too with the rest of the members of the Board of Directors although not of the same level, degree and intensity.

    Today, March 21, 2010 at 10:00 A.M. Fely Jaque attended the meeting of L’MAMFES, a recognized religious organization in the Parish, which was held at the Mother Francisca Spiritual Center at General Santos City. The purpose was to present to the members the opportunity of their organization for Income Generating Project. At the same time influencing them to shift on their life styles as to choices of foods and manner of caring nature and earth.

    As a result of the 10 minutes presentation, the L’MAMFES organization will discuss as to when they will become a member and how many shares their organization will subscribe. Many of them express their intention to become individual member.

    Action to be done: There is a need to make follow- up for their membership as an organization and as individual members for those who signify/express their interest.

    March 26, 2010- 6:30 to 10:00 in the evening is the regular schedule of monthly meeting of the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) of Sts. Peter and Paul Parish, General Santos City, Philippines. Agri-Green had been introduced to the members of the PPC as one of the avenues to engage advocacy on organic farming and at the same time a very promising business venture. It is expected that 83 GKKs of the parish can become member within two years. There is a need to follow through the initial explanation at the GKK level.

    April 13, 2010: Agri-Green Members Consultative Meeting with CDA Officer, Mr. Danny Pandes was made at Tuna Grill, Quirino St., General Sanatos City. There were 16 members who attended out of 22. Four members who were absent had pastoral related concerns which were urgent, one professor confirmed his attendance but perhaps something urgent happened too and another professor had to attend urgently to the hospitalization of her brother.

    Ms. Fely Jaque briefly reviewed Agri Green history and Vision for the sake of the new members, then, Mr. Pandes gave the Orientation on the new Code of Cooperatives as mandated by Republic Act No. 9520. As a result, there is a need to revise the Name of Agri Green Multi-Purpose Cooperative to Agri-Green_____________? (This was not resolve before the meeting was adjourned). The members of the Board of Directors were confirmed to be five (5) only, they are : 1. Fr. Ernesto O. Bendita, 2. Mr. Frank Balayon, 3. Fr. Frank Romano, 4. Engr. Marianito Bendita and 5. Mr. Roberto Alejo. Ms. Felicitas N. Jaque still is the Secretary and Ms. Merlita Guipo, remains to be the treasurer.

    Mr. Danny Pandes promised that he is going to provide the new format of the Articles of Cooperation and Constitution and By-Laws as soon as possible so that Agri-Green can already be registered at CDA. It will only take less than a month to finish its registration. The paid-up capital remains to be P250,000.00 which is targetted to be in bank by the end of April, 2010.

    The treasurer is concern on collecting payment of shares from members as soon as possible. The Board of Directors wanted to start planting Lakatan by May, therefore land preparation must take place this month of April. However, contract of lease with land owner is dependent on the legality of Agri Green.

    All members are enjoined to conduct massive invitations to people who have the same advocacy without sacrificing the principles of cooperativism.

    The CDA Officer was impressed the way the BOD and members had systematically organized. He wanted it to be models to others who are planning to form cooperatives too.

    The meeting ended with a dinner.
