The Pitak Project is our practice to promote sustainable living through natural building and permaculture.
We are a small (but growing) group of women activists with different backgrounds. We’ve been friends for years and live in Baguio City, a tourist destination located in the mountains of the Cordillera Region in Northern Philippines, and Manila. Our exposure to economic and social injustice bounded us to choose a path that can show that it’s possible to care for the people, the earth and share its bounties without exploitation. This is The Pitak Project.
The word “pitak” is an Ilocano term for mud. Ilocano is the main language spoken in Northern Philippines. Its Filipino translation is “putik.” We chose the word “pitak” to symbolize the bond of the rich soil and water that gives life. It also embodies our aspiration to build naturally and produce food the permaculture way.
Good looking bunch of people! :)
