Sen. Cynthia A. Villar has launched a new program that will enable residents of Bulacan and nearby provinces to access agriculture training for free.
Villar, chairperson of the Senate Committee on Social Justice, Welfare, and Rural Development, and vice chairperson of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Food, announced the new Agricultural Crop Production course during the Farmers Day Celebration of the 12th San Jose Del Monte Cityhood Anniversary or Tanglawan Festival.
The course will be offered at the Villar SIPAG (Social Institute for Poverty Alleviation and Governance) farm school in the city which the senator opened last July.
The new program supports Villar’s vision to make learning sites more accessible to farmers. “We hope to teach them new farming techniques and other innovations to help improve their skills. In the end, it is us Filipinos who will benefit from their increased harvest and improved quality of agricultural produce,” Villar said.
