This study was conducted to determine the impact of Agro-Eco Philippines' projects to the farming practices of the beneficiaries and its corresponding socioeconomic benefits. Data were gathered from 28 farmer informants who participated the World Food Day celebration at the University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines – Cagayan de Oro Campus (USTP-CDO) employing qualitative design. The participants came from the provinces of Bukidnon and Misamis Oriental and the cities of Cagayan de Oro and El Salvador. The study revealed that almost all farmer participants adopted the organic farming practices which enabled them to at least double their farm yields. Since they do not have to buy chemicals as farm inputs, they were able to save considerable amount of money to finance the education of their children, support other farm businesses and most importantly provide food for their family. Their shift to organic farming helped improved their socioeconomic conditions specifically in providing for their household needs and education
