REDEFINING HOW SK Agricare does business

SK Agricare is a social enterprise agency in Sustainable Farming Systems focusing on Organic Production and creation organic spaces on small farm plots at village and township level.

Our efforts in remaining current and relevant without missing the global direction in the world order our main intention is to promote goal number two of the Sustainable Development Goals that the world committed to achieving from 2015 - 2030. 

By promoting and supporting small scale farmers by securing sustainable market outlets for their produce, we believe we can contribute to ending hunger by 2030. 

Our mission is to advance capacity development programmes that enable rural communities to improve productivity and participate in sustaining the local economy and be knowledgeable in managing natural resources by working with nature in the presence of climate change challenges.

The core of our development model (even though this is only at phase three of the programme) is anchored on reforestation with Pure Plant Oil (PPO) trees, that, in time will produce oil that will be used in renewable energy processes, thereby contributing to sustainable development goal number seven, of affording people easily accessible clean energyThe long-term expectation is to see communities benefiting from carbon credit programmes attained by engaging in carbon sequestration

We have developed a multi-pronged programme focusing on the promotion of:

  1.  One-Village-One-Product (OVOP) to meet product quantities demanded by market agents:                                              OVOP is based on a Japanese Development Model in which small scale farmers with small plots for cultivation are engaged in a network that participate in market-led production. This they do in a staggered cultivation system to ensure product availability at all seasons, ensuring market demanded quantities are met 
  2. Servicing emerging organic farmers via an ambit referred to as CHABUTHI Farms. CHABUTHI is an isiZulu word for Organic. Farmers are empowered with knowledge of orientation in the sustainable farming systems embracing principles of all sustainable farming systems that prioritise care of the people, care of the ecological systems and sustainability of profits to maintain sustainable livelihoods
  3. Re-forestation using pure plant oil trees, and fruit trees, inter-cropped with perennial herbs and seasonal crops following marked-led development approach.
  4. Soil Rehabilitation with focus on soil biodiversity.           Soil biodiversity is promoted and maintained through offering of Sustainable Soil Management (SSM) programmes as detailed in the services page
