Harry Gwala Agri is an NGO and has partnered with a number of commercial farmers in the Harry Gwala District. These farmers offer an 18 month work experience and mentorship program for the Agriculture students of Esayidi TVET College in Umzimkulu. I’ll be working with Harry Gwala Agri in the coming months and will be documenting this partnership. The students get the opportunity to experience a number of farm operations at various farms. In today’s shoot, I follow student Sizeni. Here she is being taught about drip irrigation and Avo cultivation by commercial farmer Bruce Allwood.
