On Friday 25 July, I and members of the new AWiA team visited our small veggie garden on the TLC Farm. One of the main reasons for the visit was to do some planning for a possible Women's Month and to inspect land for a potential 5 Ha Chilli plantation. I've shared some images from the visit. 

Thandeka Mlandeli, the future face of agri-preneurship and our first farmer in training.

I'm really impressed with the setup and the endless possibilities that I've seen at TLC.
