The Enactus-CUT in collaboration with African Solutions Institute and Centre for Applied food Security and Biotechnology (CAFSaB) took the initiative to partner with Letsemeng Local Municipality to ignite the Medicinal Plant project, a Local Economic Development (LED) project that was abandoned and vandalised in 2016. The ground-breaking ceremony took place at Letsemeng Medicinal Plant in Petrusburg on 8 of June 2019.

The Faculty Advisor, Professor Crispen Chipunza said that reviving the medicinal plant project will not only spark fresh energy within the Letsemeng local community but will also bring growth, empowerment, job creation, awareness, as well as unlocking new business opportunities.  He also pledged support and assured the community that CUT will bring-in students and academics with different expertise to ensure that the project is a success.
