COVER PHOTO. Timoteo Llena or Nong Teo established alley cropping, a mini-forest, various soil and water conservation (SWC) measures and integrated cutflower, vegetable and livestock production in his 0.75-ha agroforestry farm in Sitio Balisong, Guba, Cebu, Central Philippines. He was recognized for his numerous farmer-training programs, crossbreeding efforts in vegetables, organic fertilizers and pesticides and farm tool inventions. Nong Teo’s legacy and significant contributions will continue to live on in the minds and hearts of present and future agroforesters in the Philippines.
