In years gone past, CDM (now Namdeb) owned nearby farms and were fully sustainable, growing all the food needed by the mine’s employees.
With time and the outsourcing initiative, these activities stop and only old relics remained as a reminder of when we were sustainable. Over the past five years, Namdeb and OMDis has piloted a food nursery project which has proved to be highly successful. Tomatoes, cucumber, pumpkins strawberries, spinach etc was produced consistently and the take-off has been the local market for the past 5 years. Now it is time to expand, to diversify the offering, and to do so profitably. In addition to testing agriculture feasibility in local conditions, OMDis commissioned a feasibility study aimed at utilising 500 hectares of arable land along the lower Orange River.
