The farmers’ association of Brgy. Lumbang in Lipa City, Batangas, called Kumikitang Sakahan (KuSa), awarded a certificate of appreciation to SM Foundation last 14 November 2016. The award was given during the flag raising ceremony at the Lipa City Hall grounds.

The certificate of appreciation was for the free training given by the foundation two years ago dubbed as Kabalikat sa Kabuhayan (KSK). During the training, modern organic farming methods for high-value-crops were given to 20 KuSa members. Upon utilization of the newly learned methods, the farmers were able to harvest more produce that they used to produce.

Further assistance by the government made the farmers as regular participants in the weekly Sinag Kabuhayan. This is a weekly farmers market fair held every Friday at the Lipa City Hall Grounds. Sinag Kabuhayan is spearheaded by Mayor Meynard A. Sabili, MAS Foundation and organized by the Agriculture Office of Lipa City.
