Kevin Ilano: A Next Generation Grower
From a young age, Kevin’s inspiration to step into the world of agriculture has been fueled by the support he received from his community, and a dream nurtured by his grandmother. His aspiration to own a successful large-scale farm and contribute to his nation’s growth was matched by a desire to share his knowledge with others. “I was inspired by the support I received and the dream to own a successful large farm,” Kevin reflects. “I want to share what I’ve learned with those interested in farming.”
Kevin’s journey into the world of hydroponics wasn’t without its hurdles. At just 15, Kevin started his small business and built his greenhouse using bamboo and wooden logs. The resourceful youngster faced every challenge head-on, learning from his mistakes, and improving his craft. “It’s not easy to start farming, especially at a young age. However, the joy of doing business, farming, and achieving success far outweighs the fatigue and challenges,” says Kevin.
His innovative spirit has guided Kevin to find solutions and teach himself new skills. He painstakingly built his own greenhouse while balancing schoolwork and constantly sought to expand his knowledge. “I started by myself, building my greenhouse and studying how to cultivate crops. I wrote things down and studied until I learned little by little,” Kevin recounts.
Committed to sustainable farming practices, Kevin emphasizes that his hydroponic farm has no negative impact on the environment. “My cultivation doesn’t affect our nature. In hydroponics, we don’t use toxic chemicals that can harm human health or nature,” says Kevin.
Educating and Advocating
For Kevin, agriculture is not just about food production but also a source of employment and income. He is passionate about sharing his knowledge and inspiring others to engage in hydroponic farming. “Agriculture is a provider of employment and a source of income. I won’t regret sharing this gift and blessing from God with people who want to learn and participate in hydroponics,” Kevin emphasizes.
Visions and Future Plans
When it comes to the future, Kevin is driven by determination and self-belief. His strategy for achieving his goals is simple but powerful, involving fortitude, strategy, and a never-give-up attitude. “Be strong, strategize, learn more, and trust in yourself. Take care of what you’ve started and cherish it. If you’re tired, rest, and then keep going,” advises Kevin.
Collaborations and Partnerships
Kevin attributes part of his success to the collaborations he’s formed with other growers and the advice he’s received from industry experts. “I’ve asked for help from grower experts, participated in their groups, and listened to their advice. I’ve learned from them and grown,” Kevin says.
Personal Interests and Hobbies
Outside of hydroponics, Kevin’s interests lie in building a successful future and making a positive impact on his community. His farming work and personal interests intertwine, driving him towards his goals.
