Candidates from Momentum Metropolitan’s Women in Farming programme, a three-year incubator that aims to enhance the skills of young black female farmers, recently celebrated their graduation from phase one of the programme, which covers training in areas such as mental wellness and analysis; poultry and vegetable farming; and soil fertility and plant nutrition. 

At the end of the programme, graduates are invited to become part of the Pietermaritzburg Agri network, qualifying as contracted traders while receiving exposure to new market access opportunities, enabling them to grow their enterprises.
