Agriculturally Awesome
           “Agriculturally Awesome” is the moniker given to a very creative campaign to promote agritourism of two regional offices of Region IVA, otherwise known as CALABARZON, which stands for the provinces of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon.  On one hand, there is the Agricultural Training Institute of Region IVA of the Department of Agriculture whose vision is “leadership and excellence in agricultural and fishery technology and knowledge management for a more proactive and responsive extension services” and whose mission is “to ensure delivery of quality extension services in agriculture and fisheries.”  On the other, there is the Region IVA office of the Department of Tourism whose mission is “to encourage, promote, and develop tourism as a major socio-economic activity to generate foreign currency and employment and to spread the benefits of tourism to both the private and public sectors.”
