BY MARK L. GARCIA

Thirty-nine inmates at the Negros Occidental District Jail in Bago City now have skills in organic farming after almost three months of studying through the Farmer’s Field School of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist.

The inmates graduated yesterday from the program at the NODJ facility in Barangay Tabunan, where they were taught how to grow organic vegetables, Provincial Agriculturist Japhet Masculino said yesterday.

This is the first batch of inmates that they trained under the Farmer’s Field School, where personnel from OPA and Office of the City Agriculturist of Bago taught them the basics of organic agriculture every week, since April this year.
