AGRICULTURE FEEDS THE NATIONCasidra
On Friday, 9 September 2022 the Minister of Agriculture, Dr Ivan Meyer, visited the Melkbosstrand Private School situated in the neighbouring farm just outside Melkbosstrand. He addressed the teachers and learners, and shared greater insight into all the efforts that his Department and Casidra are doing to continue to ensure that there is food on the table for every household in the Province and beyond. “I am proud of all the learners who chose to take Agriculture as their main subject because Agriculture feeds the nation, #Fortheloveofagriculture”, said Minister Meyer. The WCDoA and Casidra’s Food Security teams worked tirelessly to successfully set up hydroponics, an irrigation system and seedlings at the school.
