Having been to various organic farms in the country and listening to first-hand stories of organic agriculture (OA) practitioners, I have opted to shift to a “healthier” living for more than a year now. I tried juicing vegetables, incorporating fresh salads in every meal, and eating more vegetables than meat or rice.

Although there is enough supply of organic produce in supermarkets, I honestly think they are overpriced… so I looked for other alternatives.

Extension services continue to evolve. With the challenges that extension workers and farmers face, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) continues to explore various strategies to improve its efforts as the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture.
