In his backyard in Sitio Aprot, Brgy. Caparispisan, Pagudpud, Alwin grows Agoho seedlings for a community-based seedling production program in Ilocos Norte. He and his wife Analyn plant the seeds that they collect from the forest in polyethylene potting bags and nurse them for five months. The potting bags were provided by North Luzon Renewables (NLR) and were bought for P14.00 (US$0.275) each. These seedlings are hardened for a month in the NLR nursery before they are planted within the NLR windfarm.
