The training culminated in a market tour, harvest festival and graduation ceremony, where over 60 farmers from the said batches passed their TESDA National Certificate II in Organic Agriculture Production assessment. This milestone opens doors for the farmers, enabling them to explore agripreneurship or pursue employment opportunities in the thriving organic farming sector, all while applying their skills in sustainable agriculture and food production in accordance with organic farming standards and principles.
