The Sekelbos project

Sekelbos or Dichrostachys Cinerea is a invader plant that needs to be managed by farmers. As part of its social labor plan Matutu Milling has put in place the Sekelbos Project. This project aims to manage the communal farm lands and remove the Sekelbos to ensure that the veld can recover for cattle grazing. By removing Sekelbos the farming capacity of the land is improved and this positively effects the local farming community. 

The project was awarded to Mosupatsela Farming Co-operative a 100% black owned company which employ several members from the Mabeskraal community. Matutu Milling assisted with the start up capital for the machines and the first months labor as well as mentoring. 

The Sekelbos project can deliver several tons of braai wood per week. Currently the business is producing its first few months of stock which should be ready for sale soon. 

Matutu Milling Plans to expand this project to include the production of charcoal as well as briquettes in the near future

This all complies with Matutu Millings vision of mining inclusively with the community.
