Farmers of the Future is a small business and entrepreneurship training program in the Greater Kruger Area of South Africa, focused on agro-ecology, and how to develop a small business through farming. As this area suffers from severe climate conditions and droughts, a specific focus is growing climate resilient indigenous vegetables and reintroducing this crop into the marketplace.
The training program runs for 18 months with weekly lessons and is divided into three 6 months phases plus an indefinite mentorship and access to a supply chain network while they open their new business through a kickstart loan.
Phase 1: Business Training
Basic Business Concepts
