"Conflict equals poverty, unity equals prosperity." These were the words of Dr Braam Hanekom, facilitator at the first of four dialogue workshops the Western Cape Department of Agriculture will be hosting this year. The session was held in June at La Provence near Stellenbosch. The aim was to provide a platform for farmers, farm workers and representatives of organised agriculture to open up communication channels and voice their concerns and expectations to one another. It forms part of the Western Cape Government's 12-Point Plan in response to the farm worker unrest experienced in 2012 and 2013.
