The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

“Tayo na sa kabukiran” -- an ASP wellness activity

ASP Sta. Rosa spearheaded health and wellness activities last 12 July 2014 at Sweet Spring Farm in Alfonso, Cavite, owned by Secretary Francis “Kiko’ Pangilinan and family -- in celebration of the National Health Month.

The activities included a talk on natural farming, harvesting vegetables, feeding pigs with organic lettuce, yoga and preparing green smoothies. These activities were aimed to encourage PWA’s and their families develop a healthier lifestyle and create an awareness on the benefits of organic farming.

The farm tour was attended by twenty eight participants -- six PWA’s, eight teachers and family members. The participants did not only learn; but they were also able to enjoy the relaxing environment and the farm’s fresh air. They were also able to bring home the vegetables they picked from the farm, as well as received free potted herbs as souvenirs.
