Timbali Technology Incubator
Region: Mbombela (Nelspruit) - South Africa
Crop: Flowers; Gerberas, Lisianthus
Type of Structure: Closed Gadash 8m, Classic 9.6m (20000m²)
Description of Project:
This project involved setting up a facility for the training and mentorship of potential farmers. The first phase was the erection of twelve 1000m² closed greenhouses. The greenhouse structures had to be affordable but efficient with low maintenance. A further 8000m² were added a year later and the project has successfully produced a number of graduates who now farm independently of the incubator.
