“First I would like to say Thank you to all the staff and officers of ATI Caraga likewise to Sir Jayson Dalapo from D.A Trento Research Experiment Station for giving us the skills and knowledge on how to maintain and care of fruiting Oyster Mushroom. This is the best initiative by the government for us to have alternative food source that is very healthy. At the same time, it is another opportunity to engage in Agri-Business and to have a good source of income. Thank you and more power.”

I am very pleased and thankful for this opportunity to join in this training together with my other GK workers because we were able to have a refresher from the things we learned before. We were also able to learn new things, especially on the care and maintenance of the fruiting bags, which is very useful to our organization since we are currently developing our Oyster Mushroom Enterprise.”
