Caroline Galvez

Carol Galvez co-founded The Pitak Project, which aims to regenerate peoples and places by applying replicable farming approaches based on their context and experience. They arouse, educate, inform, organize and empower people to act and work towards earth, people, and future care.

“The Pitak Project is a practice to promote regenerative living through natural building and permaculture,” says Carol. “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.”
