Examining critical success factors enabling successful smallholder agriculture

Phuhlisani has completed a desktop review of agricultural extension services in South Africa and has submitted two cases as its contribution to a broader national research enquiry led by PLAAS.

In the Cape Town  case study we compare City Council and Department of Agriculture initiatives to grow smallscale agriculture in the metropolitan area with work undertaken by Abalimi Bezekhaya who work to support urban producers in the townships and informal settlements in Cape Town to grow organic vegetables marketed through the Harvest of Hope Programme.  We also review the factors contributing to the relative success of producers on the Prins Albert Commonage.
