REDEFINING HOW SK Agricare does business

SK Agricare is a social enterprise agency in Sustainable Farming Systems with focus on Organic Production and creation of chemical-free zones as well as promoting organic spaces on small farm plots at village and township level.

In order to remain current and relevant without missing the direction the whole world is engaging in, 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.

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

  •  One-Village-One-Product (OVOP) to meet product quantities demanded by market agents
  • Servicing emerging organic farmers via an ambit referred to as CHABUTHI Farms. CHABUTHI is an isiZulu word for Organic
  • Soil and Water conservation with focus on rehabilitation of degraded soils from extended use chemical inputs 
  • Re-forestation using pure plant oil trees, and fruit trees, inter-cropped with perennial herbs and seasonal crops following marked-led development approach. 

We have mobilised  farmers from four villages in the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal to participate in perennial herbs  intensification to meet current market demand for this produce.

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
