Updated: 32 min 17 sec ago
Senior Citizens in Central Luzon convened in Iba, Zambales to venture on Backyard Gardening. They attended the training to equip themselves with skills on the said subject.
Mr. Joey Alvior was the resource person. The training deployed a lecture and hands-on activity.
The event was held on February 7-9, 2017 in Journey's Farm, Iba, Zambales.
For the year 2017, a total of 10 Farmers Information Technology Services (FITS) Centers in Central Luzon will be enhanced under the Rice Crop Manager (RCM).
For the first quarter, three FITS Centers were identified for enhancement: Balanga, Talavera and Dingalan. These said FITS Centers were validated by the RTWG (Regional Technical Working Group) composed of ATI and CLAARRDEC staff.
This will be implemented to enhance the services and capabilities of FITS Centers through the integration of RCM.
The Information Services Section (ISS) network nationwide, including the Information Services Division of Central Office, convened to attend the 1st KM Updates of 2017. Same as last year, it was a grand meet-up of all the members of the ISS to know each other well at the same time to learn while having fun.
Working mothers are very busy – they have work but still need to take care of household activities. Due to limited time in preparation, they tend to buy instant food without knowing the damaging effects of it in the future.
With this, ATI in Central Luzon conducted a seminar on FAITH Gardening (Food Always in the Home) for them. This activity was designed to advocate organic agriculture and encourage households/mothers to value and utilize organic products for the family.
The Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) will be holding a National Workshop for Rice Crop Manager (RCM) in Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental on January 31-February 3, 2017. All RCM focal persons, who are also the chiefs of the Information Services Section of the ATI centers, are expected to participate in the event. The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), in collaboration with ATI, will be facilitating the said workshop.
For three decades of successfully conducting extension and training services, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) celebrated its 30th Anniversary on the last week of January packed with week-long activities in its Central Office in Quezon City.
The Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) Network nationwide gathered in ATI-Central Office in Diliman, Quezon City to celebrate the agency's 30th anniversary with the theme "Extending Excellent Extension services beyond Boundaries” on January 26, 2017.
One of the highlights of the celebration was the glam night. Dressed in the best pearl white ensemble to symbolize the office's pearl anniversary, the employees danced and celebrated the night away with 1980s groove.
Dr. Luz A. Taposok, Agricultural Training Institute National Director, led the swearing into office of the Region 3 Farmers’ Association Officers. The association, with Ms. Anette Patdu of Diaspora Farm (Bacolor, Pampanga) as President, is composed of all the learning site cooperators in Central Luzon. This group fosters harmonious relationship among them and at the same time help one another through sharing of learning experiences.
