Farmers Review Africa

As the cannabis and hemp industries are gathering momentum in South Africa, it is important to ensure that opportunities are offered to those less fortunate. Earlier this year, Africa’s leading cannabis education and training company, Cheeba Cannabis Academy partnered with leading online agricultural school, AGRICOLLEGES international to launch an AgriSETA accredited program called

“National Certificate in Plant Production – Cannabis and Hemp” (NQF Level 4; SAQA ID: 49009).

The parties have now partnered with the family farming network SAAI (Southern African Agri Initiative), who represents over 9,000 family farms to launch an annual scholarship program for the course. The scholarship will facilitate two students per year and is aimed at underprivileged candidates who have a passion for and an interest in cannabis or hemp cultivation in South Africa. The course is a one-year online course comprising 35 hours per week. Students can complete it from anywhere. It includes ten lecture-led Zoom classes as well as a seven-day practical at a cannabis farm in Gauteng towards the end of the course.
