Alien Clearing for Agriculture

Contracts to the value of R1 200 000.00 were signed with the Department of Agriculture of which R75 000 is allocated for LandCare and the rest is allocated to alien clearing projects in the CWCBR region and community job creation and capacity building. The alien-clearing project is being managed well and payments are processed through the CWCBR.

Over 24 jobs have being created and approximately 60 ha have been cleared since 1 March 2010. This alien clearing is taking place on privately owned land, through which the CWCBR is directly benefiting farmers in the region.
