ksk batch 180 harvest pic 2

SM Foundation gave free training in urban farming in the municipality of Ayusan I, Tiaong Quezon.  The batch 180 KSK Farmer -Beneficiaries We help bring back hope in farming by updating the agricultural knowledge of our farmers through the Kabalikat sa Kabuhayan Farmers’ Training Program. For 12 weeks, farmers are taught on effective backyard planting and small-scale farming techniques for fruits and vegetables. This helps improve the quality and quantity of their crops as well as provide organic food for their families. We also assist farmers who form cooperatives by linking them to local markets and SM suppliers for a more stable source of income.

“There is a lot of potential in the Philippine vegetable sector, Tatang believes that and we are happy to help in every way we can by providing support and assistance in the mall based level” SM San Pablo PR Manager Nina Wong said last  Tuesday, November 13th during the harvest festival. “These smiles, these bountiful harvest- this is hope” she added. SM San Pablo Assistant Mall Manager Dan Belen on his speech said that the KSK Graduation ceremony is just a start of a brighter future for all its beneficiaries and this is exactly what SM wished for them. The harvest festival was attended by Mayor Ramon Preza and first lady Loida Preza and Tiaong  LGUs.

SM Foundation’s sustainable agriculture program teaches farmers effective farming. The KSK program is the brainchild of retail pioneer Henry Sy, Sr. Harbest Agribusiness Corporation’s Arsenio “Toto” Barcelona, SM Foundation’s partner in the KSK training program, recounted how he met Sy in 2006 who was exploring opportunities of putting together a social development program in Tagaytay Highlands.

“I told Mr. Sy about what Harbest has been doing, particularly training farmers and he liked the idea,” Barcelona said.

He added, “Mr. Sy’s instruction was very simple-to create a similar program for SM Foundation where small-scale farmers can learn improved farming technology. After a week, Cristie (Angeles of SM Foundation’s Livelihood program) called me up to try it out. We decided to start in Bacolod City.” And as they would put it, the rest is history.  Now on its 180th batch of Famers Scholars, tbis project continues to provide sustainable livelihood to communities.
