ACCESS | October-December 2018 Issue

Posted by: 

Knowledge on farming is meant to be shared and, as the extension arm in the agriculture sector, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) is creating the means for people to do so. With the rising food prices in Metro Manila, the ATI launched a series of free seminars on different agriculture and fisheries technologies featuring experts from public and private organizations. Through this, the Institute aims to help people in urban areas produce their own food even with the limited space in their backyards.

From 15 participants in the first event, the free seminar series has since been attracting thousands of people from different walks of life. What was the turning point for the success of this initiative? Find out through this latest issue of ACCESS, the official publication of the ATI. It also features stories about the AgriTalk series, a project with Agriculture Magazine of the Manila Bulletin Publishing Corporation. It’s 16 full pages of information and inspiration, which you can have for free by downloading from our website. You can also drop by our office at Elliptical Road, Diliman, Quezon City to get a copy or two! #ishareknowledge #atiinspire
