14 KSK Trainings Slated For 2013

The SM Foundation is planning to conduct 14 batches of training in vegetable production under the Kabalikat Sa Kabuhayan (KSK) training program that it is undertaking in collaboration with Harbest Agribusiness of Toto Barcelona.

The trainees consist of as many as 100 farmers who come from communities where there are SM Malls in the provinces. The objective is to teach farmers how to produce high quality vegetables that could meet the strict standards of SM Supermarkets. The farmers will have a ready market for their harvest if they can produce the right quality.

So far, 46 batches of trainees have finished the training, the latest of which was that in Calamba City. Under the program, the trainees attend lectures as well as hands-on practice on the various chores in vegetable production. The training lasts for three months, each participant attending a weekly session. At he end of the training, the crops would already be harvestable and a Harvest Festival is held. The trainees don’t pay anything. They are scholars!
