Seventeen youngsters arrived to start the level 1 Mixed Farming (agroecological) course at the Sustainability Institute on Thursday 13th June. They will be based primarily at Eric Swarts' farm alongside the Spier Estate - where they will benefit from his extensive farming knowledge, teaching expertise and experience every morning. They will provide much needed assistance to Eric, and start the dream: A working and learning organic farm. Afternoons will be spent with the project co-ordinator Terrence Ward, working through all the theory required. For more pics click HERE.
