Franschhoek Hospitality Academy’s visit to Mason Farming
The new students of 2020 descended upon Mason Farming on Thursday 16 January with great enthusiasm, ready to roll up their sleeves and work the land.
It only took them minutes to realise that it looked easier than expected. Firstly, it was a very hot, dry, windy day. Secondly, they only had a few hours to spend with us but had many processes to learn.
They were exposed to compost-making, transplanting, weeding and collecting organic waste.
