SIBAT's Sustainable Agriculture Training Center (SATC) has been enriched by the untiring work of SIBAT's agriculturists and farmer technicians. SIBAT's learning modules and pedagogical content are drawn from actual experiences and learning innovations from partner farming communities and farmer cooperators. Moreso that the SATC is located in SIBAT's demonstration farm also strengthens learning. With the various trainings conducted and more trainings planned primarily for partner farming communities and people's organizations, promoting and replicating sustainable agriculture practices has proved to be a sustainable approach, enabling farmers to learn and innovate on their own with SIBAT agriculturists providing the necessary advisory support.
Since then, these are the trainings that were done by the training team and SA agriculturists of SIBAT, namely Pedro Aurelio dela Cruz, Maria Pilar Castro-Pablo, Anacorita Oliquino-Abasolo, Delilah Barte and Lindon Escalante with Sansen Maglinte as the SA coordinator.
