Farmer Scientist Training Program Graduation in Carcar City

Farmer Scientist Training Program Graduation

I was in Carcar City for the Holy Mass of the Farmer Scientist Training Program (FSTP) graduation. It was my first time to enter the new Carcar City Hall. Nice place!

 

 

The theme for the celebration was “Empowering Farmers for Socio-economic Progress.” The corn-based FSTP is based on the assumptions that “there is no barren soil, only barren mind” and “farming is a business and designed to liberate poor farmers from the bondage of poverty and hunger.”

 

Farmer Scientist Training Program Graduation

 

Farmer Scientist Training Program Graduation

 

The main objective of the Farmer Scientists Research, Development and Extension Training Program is to give small farmers in Cebu, Siquijor, Negros Oriental, Bohol, Leyte and other provinces in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao direct training contact with agricultural experts and scientists to develop their technical and scientific capabilities to grow corn and other crops utilizing appropriate farming technologies.

 

 

It also aims to strengthen the teaching, research and extension capabilities of local government units and state colleges and universities so they can render better services in their areas of responsibility.

 

Farmer Scientist Training Program Graduation

 

The theme song of the graduates of FSTP is “Sino Ako,” composed by Fr. Jose S. Castañeda who was then assistant parish priest of the Basilica de Immaculada Concepcion in Batangas City back in 1981. The same song was translated into Cebuano by Fr. Roberto M. Ebisa, SVD in 1995.
