On 22 January 2018, researchers from the EMIT C4C Center, together with faculty members from the Erasmus University Rotterdam, and institutional partner Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF), conducted a learning session with representatives of various farmers’ organizations involved in the Farmer Entrepreneurship Program (FEP). The assembly was held in the office of the KALASAG Farmers Producers Cooperative (FPC) in San Jose, Nueva Ecija. The organizations represented included farmer leaders of cooperatives from Ilocos Sur, Laguna, and Benguet. Members of the City Agriculture and City Cooperative offices of the local government were also present.

The meeting commenced with a short tour of the KALASAG FPC’s farm sites and facilities, supplemented with informal information sharing on onion planting practices and technology. The tour was followed by discussions, where representatives exchanged challenges encountered and experiences gained as part of the FEP.
The learning session equipped the researchers with a more grounded understanding of the FEP and its implementation. More importantly, it provided an avenue for various farmers’ organizations to learn from each other.
