Philippi households to get lessons on hydroponics
About 40 households from Philippi and the surrounding areas will be trained how to use a newly developed hydroponics vegetable garden.
It's an initiative between Fresh Life Produce, Food Lovers Market and Investec which will be piloted in the Western Cape.
Director of Fresh Life Produce Louis-Gillis Janse van Rensburg says these households will be given 50 plants each to start the vegetable gardens.
For the first six months, it will be to make sure that they understand how to use the system and how to grow the vegetables for their own use.Louis-Gillis Janse van Rensburg, Director of Fresh Life Produce
Once we have piloted this project we have to show that it is possible for them to use it successfully and to expand the project by giving them additional towers to grow access and using these big corporates that are already involved to see if we can create a market for them and create an additional income stream.Louis-Gillis Janse van Rensburg, Director of Fresh Life Produce
