Volunteer ALIG coordinators plan day trips and activities to interesting and unique destinations within driving distance of Alabang.

ALIG members then trekked along the Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road to visit some wonderful roadside vendors for the famous sweet Tagaytay pineapple, and other delicious fresh produce.Tagaytay3

From there, members stopped at the various plant shops. Continuing down the highway, there were shops for custom wood furniture and products (for which Tagaytay is well-known), lanai furniture and amazing household and garden pottery.
