On 29 August 2023, fifty community members from Scenery Park in East London were trained to establish home food gardens using the ‘Farming God’s Way’ management principles. People were encouraged to see the soil in their gardens as a blessing from God, and to tap into its fruitfulness and potential. It is the vision of Agri Vision Foundation to empower entrepreneurial farming start-ups to provide healthy food and hope to their local community. AgricultSURE, in partnership with Laeveld Agrochem proudly supports this initiative. Our passion is to break the cycle of poverty in rural communities throughout South Africa.
During phase 2 of this project, two additional demonstration gardens will be planted. Over the next 12 months, Agri Vision Foundation will continue to provide training courses in entrepreneurship and ethical leadership.
