Here at the GSAM our farm plays an important role in keeping our need for external funding down. We grow crops to feed ourselves but also to sell and generate income. This project seeks to secure our property through the construction of approximately 1100m of fencing around our Northern field. The fence will help to protect the crops, keep our kids safe within our campus and ensure our physical land is not being encroached upon.
In 2006 we fenced our North field with concrete posts and barbed wire, and while this has been great, there are a few shortcomings. Animals such as goats, wild pigs, deer, cows and buffalo can still get through. We spend a lot of time chasing unwanted animals from our fields, however they often get a good feed before we do.
