As an initiative of the CBSUA-VPBEA Cluster to provide opportunities for livelihood, Dr. Alan Del Rosario, Director of the Taro Center, and the VPBEA cluster’s directors held a training workshop on Taro Production at Brgy. Tarum, Libmanan, Camarines Sur on September 8, 2022.
The said workshop was attended by residents of the said barangay. Present also was the Vice Mayor of Libmanan, Hon. Jerry Tendero who expressed and showed his support for the program as agriculture will be the next point of concentration of his projects.
In the training workshop proper, Dr. Del Rosario gave a comprehensive discussion about the taro, its varieties, pests that may infest it, taro diseases, and most importantly its growing and production process.
After the training workshop, an ample amount of taro seedlings were given to the residents as a startup for their own taro production.
With the promising outcomes of the training workshop, talks of a partnership between CBSUA-VPBEA and the LGU of Libmanan to continue the project is underway.
