Media Alert: Damaged Farms to Receive Compost Lifeline

27 November 2012

Minster Gerrit van Rensburg will tomorrow accept a generous donation of compost from a major compost manufacturer. The venue for tomorrow’s handover is Constitution Farm, an empowerment farm which suffered fire damage to three hectares of vineyard. The donator is offering 30mᵌ for each hectare of land burned during the recent protest actions. Minister Van Rensburg will see to it that all empowerment farms in the Western Cape which were affected by the protest action benefit from this offer.

You are welcome to witness the first donation on Constitution Road Project, in Robertson.
