To enhance food sufficiency, an urban agricultural school has been established
Given the appropriate knowledge and passion for agriculture that will be implanted in the brains of learners, the establishment of a farm school in this city is anticipated to increase food sufficiency.
On Friday, Dr. Ma. Luz De los Reyes, director of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) schools division, stated that although some city residents like growing beautiful plants, it would be preferable if they also engaged in “edible farming.”
“Our curriculum will be relevant to youngsters since they will be able to build their own agricultural farm at home. In an interview, she said, “Our farm school selected organic farming since it is the most practical and practicable kind of farming in the metropolitan region.”
The farm school will be presented to 39 students who have chosen to enroll in the curriculum at the Tiu Cho Teg-Ana Ros Foundation Integrated Farm School in Barangay Lanit in the Jaro area of this city.
The school has fulfilled the DepEd’s requirements for offering the curriculum. It has an area suitable for small-scale organic farming or gardening.
It also boasts two agricultural instructors, according to her, who is the finest at teaching the topic.
Because face-to-face courses are still prohibited, they will use an offline-online blended learning approach. Even their practical actions will be carried out through the internet.
Students will be given computer tablets with organic farming and agricultural curricula as well as their other courses.
“They are normal high school pupils in Grade 7.” They only have an agricultural curriculum, and their other courses have agriculture teachings incorporated into them,” De los Reyes said.
The school administrator expressed optimism about the outcome of the initiative, stating that even without a formal school, there is already a strong interest in gardening and farming in the neighborhood.
She believes it will be more engaging since the approach is scientific and kids will be learning ideas.
Despite having yet to sign a memorandum of understanding, DepEd will collaborate with the City Agriculturist Office and the Department of Agriculture (DA) to use the Uswag Plant Nursery in Barangay Tacas, Jaro as their laboratory (MOA).
“I don’t believe the city would abandon DepEd even if the MOA is not signed since the city is always there for the people. She said, “We are 100 percent certain that the local government would assist the Department of Education as a partner in farm school.”
