Coronation

Coronation has supported the South African Institute of Entrepreneurship’s programme, AgriPlanner, since 2004. We invited media to witness first-hand the positive change of this programme at the Siyazama Community Food Garden in Khayelitsha. 

 

The Research

Alarmingly, Statistics SA reports that the number of subsistence farming households in SA dropped from 2.9 million in 2011 to 2.3 million in 2016, as a result of severe droughts in 2014 - 2015. Around 55% of these farmers are women who work to support their families.
As the country’s emerging farmers awaited the launch of the highly anticipated public-private Agricultural Development Agency, which intended to boost the emerging farming sector, the private sector once again emerges as an essential ally of the country’s emerging farmers.
