The Department of Science and Technology, Region 7 (DOST-7), with its barangay beneficiaries Brgy. Luz and Brgy. Lahug,  will launch the third phase of its Farmer-Scientists Training Program (FSTP) for urban vegetable-based gardening and marketing system on May 22, 2015, 1pm at the Elena O. Diola Memorial Hall, DOST 7, Sudlon, Lahug, Cebu City.  Alongside the launching is the graduation of the farmer-scientists who completed the second phase of the program.  The undertaking kicks off with the theme, “Empowering urban residents in Cebu with Science and Technology to grow vegetables and other crops to improve their health and living conditions.”

FSTP started in Argao, Cebu in 1994, with the goal of helping the poor farmers from poverty and hunger.  Because of its success, it has expanded to other towns in the region.  In fact, Executive Order 710 was formulated effective February 2008, making FSTP a national program implemented in the regions throughout the country.

At present, FSTP addresses the problem on lack of effective means of technology transfer to marginal farmers.  Its main objective is to effect farmer-to-farmer research and development technology transfer in the area of urban agriculture.
