Establishing the Farmers SA Training Center

Training Hall of SATC
Training Hall of SATC

SIBAT’s Sustainable Agriculture Training Center (SATC) is now being enhanced for the showcasing of various technologies as learning venues for the ongoing trainings primarily for poor farmers.  Currently, the resource and library center has now a wide array of references while improving in-house staff knowledge and communication/training skills to effectively communicate the contents and activities especially when conducting trainings or hosting eco-tour visits from LGUs, Academe, advocates and practitioners.

Correspondingly systematized promotion of courses, fee structures and related services are intensified while dormitory facilities have initially been constructed for live-in trainings and exposures.

SIBAT’s learning modules and pedagogical content are drawn from actual experience of POs and NGOs, based on the 27 years of SIBAT’s Sustainable Agriculture development work.  That the SATC is physically situated in SIBAT’s Mangarita Organic Demonstration Farm also strengthens hands-on learning.  Various SA trainings have been conducted for farmer peoples’ organizations and farmer co-operators that have contributed to accelerating adoption of organic farming practices with partner farming communities.

The dormitory for trainees is now built that can house 15-20 participants for SIBAT's sustainable agriculture trainings, both basic and advanced short courses for farmers, sustainable agriculture advocates, extension workers, NGO development workers, and other interested groups and individuals that wants to learn how to initiate and establish organic farming systems in their own backyards and farms.
