Agricultural community rehabilitation, South Africa


This governmental project, that TerraVerde participated in , incorporated 19 highly geographically dispersed communities . The communities were surveyed to develop a vision to rehabilitate their agricultural infrastructure , and strengthen their skills and economic capabilities. Factors studied were: physical, climatic and agricultural conditions, land and infrastructure. Socioeconomic aspects and community member abilities, preferences and desires were also assessed. A development scheme was developed for each community, including: choice of crops/livestock, agro-processing, agro-technology and training scheme. An economic evaluation was also performed. As a team within the overall project, TerraVerde conducted the agricultural planning and developed the training scheme.


This project is driving improvements in the standards of living for hundreds of  families in rural South Africa. Achievements include the introduction of new varieties and
breeds, local-population training and capacity building and the establishment of foundations for community-level self-sustainability.

TerraVerde Agriculture mourns the loss of a colleague and partner to agricultural advancement in the Negev, in Israel, and worldwide
יגאל פלאש ואשתו סינדי

Igal Flash and Cindy his wife were murdered by Hamas killers in their home in Kfar Aza, in the horrific attack that took place in the Western Negev on Saturday,
october 7.

Igal, was one of the professional pillars of field crops in Israel, especially in the cotton industry and in particularly in the Western Negev. They were brutally murdered in their home at Kfar Aza.

Igal continued a tradition of agriculture in this arid region, personally contributing to the continuous development from ancient rain-fed methods to the modern innovations of the 21st century. Building this robust agricultural environment not only boosted the settlement of a desert region with a thriving local economy, but also led to significant technological progress shared globally.

Further to the ceremony held in Israel we join the family in its mourning and in the fundraising efforts aimed to rebuild their lives, cover funeral expenses in Israel and the memorial in the US.

Be there for the Flash family:

In addition to the murder and injury of thousands of people, the agriculture in the area was also significantly damaged.
