Science and Technology Community-Based Farm (STCBF) on Oyster Mushroom Production as an Alternative Source of Livelihood in Disaster Vulnerable Areas in Region 1

The project provided alternative source of livelihood to the disaster vulnerable communities of Region 1. Involved farmers were taught technologies on oyster mushroom production, that served as additional source of income for them when the weather condition becomes less favorable for agricultural production. Beneficiaries were introduced to technologies on oyster mushroom production, preparation of pure culture, grain spawn and fruiting bags production, and food processing. The two (2)-year project was implemented in the provinces of Ilocos Sur, La Union and Pangasinan.
