AgricultSURE focuses on engaging youth in farming and agriculture by introducing basic crop production practices in schools and childcare centers. We collaborate with organizations and individuals to teach children about growing crops and gardening. We also emphasize the importance of communal household vegetable gardens in addressing food shortages. AgricultSURE works with community development agents and government departments to promote food security solutions. We offer assessments, starter packs with crop inputs, and gardening equipment to communities interested in improving their food production. Additionally, AgricultSURE collaborates with mining groups to implement smallholder farmer projects on rehabilitated mining land, emphasizing regenerative farming practices and biodiversity. We provide training and support to communities living near mining sites, helping them become self-sufficient and address food insecurity.
AgricultSURE, a South African small-scale farmer developer, joined forces with Laeveld Agrochem for the popular televised Niche Farmers series. Airing since August 2022, the series showcases local up-and-coming farmers using innovative methods for food production. It features diverse farming enterprises, from hydroponic rooftops to greenhouses, highlighting the entrepreneurial spirit of South African farmers.
AgricultSURE and Laeveld Agrochem hope that Niche Farmers will inspire others to start their agri-businesses, promoting a wide range of food production opportunities for universal food security in the country and region. The series also emphasizes the significance of commercial farming and creating jobs in the agricultural industry.
