A group of Kindai University students led by their professor Andrew Atkins is in town for a sustainability tour in Cebu. The Psychology Volunteers on Bikes, The Cebu trio of permaculture hotels: West Gorordo Hotel, Elicon House and Mayflower Inn and the MoNA are teaming up to give these students meaningful experiences during their visit to Cebu.
Here are some photos of the welcome workshop facilitated by MoNA’s Paulina Constancia. The workshop was intended to give the Japanese uni students tidbits of the local culture by means of an ntroduction to fruits and expressions. Paulina aptly called the session “Finger Fruits: (pun on Finger Food)…not too much, not too little, just a teaser…

This month we had the pleasure of welcoming a few more groups from St. Theresa’s College(STC) High School Department . They came to West Gorordo Hotel and the MoNA for a green hotel and museum tour.
The MoNA was filled with warm, vibrant energy!
