Sustainable agriculture development through effective farmer groups

J B Stevens, S E Terblanché

Abstract


Group formation cannot simply be achieved by calling people together. The formation and development of an effective farmer group is influenced by the skills of the group promoter and the adherence to certain basic group dynamic principles. This paper reflects on the experience of establishing and working with farmer groups as they progressed through the different stages of group development and social capital formation.
