PUT UP A FARM SCHOOL AND EARN MILLIONS
FARM OWNERS might as well convert their farms into a farm school or learning site and get an extra income of R140,000 a month even by just training a batch of 25 scholars of TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) or the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) of the Department of Agriculture (DA). Of course, they can even earn millions if they can train more.

This was revealed by Pat Andrew Barrientos, center director of ATI in MIMAROPA (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and Palawan) during the Regional Summit of Farm Schools and Learning Sites for Agriculture in Mimaropa held at the Yamang Bukid Farm (YBF) in Brgy. Bacungan, Puerto Princesa on February 25-29, 2020.

Barrientos said that a farmer with at least one hectare for use as a demo farm can put up his own learning site. Farmers can easily comply with requirements, said the Mimaropa ATI regional center director. All the farmer should do is submit a letter of intent to ATI and attend trainings given by the same.

At the Yamana Bukid Farm in Palawan, they don’t only train TESDA scholars, they also teach their young visitors the importance of growing plants to feed the people.
