History

1954, as Eastern Caribbean Farm Institute, under the Colonial Development and Welfare Scheme to provide training in agriculture. Subsequently changed name to Eastern Caribbean Farm and Forestry Institute, when the Forestry School was technically set up in 1966 (with limited physical facilities). The facilities of the Forestry School were bolstered as a result of a project undertaken in 1968 by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago with assistance from United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Present name adopted 1969. In 1983, with the assistance from a World Bank Loan, a third school, the Agriculture Teacher Education Centre, was established, as a joint programme between the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Agriculture of the Trinidad and Tobago Government. This programme was discontinued in 2001. In 2002, became a campus of the 'College of Science, Technology and Tertiary Education (COSTAATT), a multi-campus college legally authorized to offer the associate degree programme, and offered the Associate of Applied Science Degrees in Agriculture and Forestry in 2007.
