DILIMAN, Quezon City—Local produce and food products from different farms and rural-based organizations were front and center during the launch of “Piyesta ng Pagkaing Pilipino” by the Department of Agriculture (DA), National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), and Philippine Culinary Heritage Movement (PCHM).
DILIMAN, Quezon City – Fill your baskets with a fresh load of farm products this August 17-18, 2017 as the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) opens the second “TienDA Farmers and Fisherfolks Outlet”.
What is TienDA? If you’re familiar with the “farmer’s market” concept, TienDA is the Department of Agriculture’s (DA) version of this kind of marketplace. Simply put, TienDA is a venue for farmers and fishers to be able to directly sell their produce, and for consumers to be able to access these products at its farm gate price.
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. In over 30 years, the ATI has celebrated various successes and learned from the lessons during hard times. Nonetheless, we are proud to be standing the test of time through the support of our partners and the clientele themselves.
