DILIMAN, Quezon City — The Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) intensifies its urban agriculture program through partnerships with different communities and organizations. This include the recently concluded online “Retirement Management Workshop” facilitated by the Human Resource Development Program of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in October 19 -22, 2020.
One of the ATI’s guiding mantra is extension delivery beyond boundaries. Before the pandemic happened, this is easier said than done. There is always a question of turfing or even the limitations and legal ramifications imposed when you literally go beyond your Physical Boundaries. Of course, boundaries could be interpreted not only in the Physical sense as everything is open to interpretation, and for the Commission on Audit, justification.

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.
