Villar SIPAG Foundation, ATI-RTC III hold Luzon-wide Training on CSFBS

The Agricultural Training Institute- Regional Training Center III (ATI-RTC III), in partnership with Villar SIPAG Foundation, conducted the Training on Climate Smart Farm Business School (CSFBS) held on May 29 – June 8, 2017 at Otel Pampanga, City of San Fernando, Pampanga. 

It was attended by a total of 31 farmers and extension workers from Regions I, II, III and Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR).

The training course aimed to help the participants learn climate-smart technologies they can use in their respective farms. Also, it helped them to turn their farms into a more profitable business. 

The activities include lectures on farm business, climate change adaptation and mitigation technologies, and opportunities and implementation of the ASEAN Economic Integration (AEC). In addition, the participants were able to visit selected profitable farmer-entrepreneurs in the region and they conducted a market survey. 

Ms. Christine Abrigo from Region I said that she’s thankful that she was invited and be part of the training. “Marami po akong natutunan talaga dito na hindi ko alam na mahalaga pala para sa isang magsasaka. Kaya, nagpapasalamat po ako sa lahat po - sa ATI-Region 3 at Villar SIPAG Foundation sa pagsasanay na ito. Akin pong ishare po ang mga kaalaman natutunan k sa aking mga kasamahan. Maraming salamat po sa lahat,” she added.

This training was the 3rd batch of CSFBS conducted in partnership with the Villar SIPAG Foundation since last year. Series of similar training is expected to be conducted on the second semester this year. (APBermudez)
