FRESH LETTUCE IN A CUP for only 25 PESOS!

Sa Medellin rani! 🥬🥬🥬

What started as a love for lettuce and a passion of farming are now fused in the thriving business of young couple Paul Alvin Tan and Louielen Zanoria Jalipa. Yes, lettuce does grow in Medellin and in water at that! The Paulen Hydroponic Garden situated in Purok Tangke, Poblacion is the brainchild of Paul Alvin Tan who just wanted to grow his own lettuce for personal consumption while he was on break from seafaring mid last year. The lack of space prompted him to learn the hydrophonic system of farming which he set up in a 100sqm space at the front yard of their ancestral home. Today, the garden yields 200 cups of the Batavia variety weekly which are sold out even before each harvest. Their buyers are mostly Medellin households and a local Korean restaurant. Paul and Len were actually childhood sweethearts back when they were in high school at St. Paul’s then. While Paul is currently on seafarer duties, Lenlen takes care of the business.

The garden gets visits not just from lettuce buyers but also those who just want to see and take pics of the marvelous sight of lettuce grown in plumbing pipes. Even Mayor Benjun in a recent visit was amazed at how they laid out and organized their hydrophonic system in a 100 sqm greenhouse. Paul and Lenlen are looking forward to expanding their business to cater to the increasing demand for this leafy health food and with the hope of inspiring others to grow their own food the hydroponic way.
