Responding to a comment on how he started, @as_ngcobo said he made a couple of sums and decided he could afford to start farming lettuce.

"So my research led me all the way to primary agriculture, one cabbage seedling costs R0.50 and I thought, hmmm I can definitely afford that. So I decided to enrol at the nearest agricultural college, called Cedara College of Agriculture in KZN."
