Mendez, Cavite — The Paradizoo has launched a free agricultural education program for those who are interested through its “Power of Three” – floral, vegetable, and agri-livestock festival.
Paradizoo, a part of the Zoomanity Group parks, aims to promote an inclusive growth in the field of agriculture by offering the free education program, which started last January and will continue up to March.
Some 20,000 students, farmers, and members of the public and private sectors are expected to benefit from the program which focuses on the growing agricultural sector in the country.
Jumpstarting the program are free seminars on flower, vegetable, and livestock care which were provided by different well-known educators and speakers of the agricultural sector, which included Senator and Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Food Cynthia Villar, and Mendez (Cavite) Mayor Eric Vida.
Among the topics discussed included Alternative and Preventive Medicine, and tomato grafting production, among other things.
To share knowledge about the Best Practices in Agriculture, there will be briefings, discussions on breeding programs, and exhibit of farm produce, sale, and auction of livestock.
While training on Rabbit Breeding, Egg Production, and Honeybee Farming will be open for everyone this coming March.
In line with the promotion of the agri-education program, a Memorandum of Agreement was signed between Robert Yupangco of Zoomanity Group and Tarlac College of Agriculture President Max Guillermo for the conduct of project development and agri-tourism ventures with provisions of scholarship for the Tarlac College of Agriculture students.
