Small holder forums are used to provide advice and new findings to our small holders (tea growers). The last small holder forum was held in February at the Ceciliyan auditorium. This forum was attended by 75 small holders of the Mihiduthalawa route. Which is one of the routes that Ceciliyan collects its tea leaves from. The forum was from 9am to 1 am followed by a factory tour.

The lecturer was Mr. Shantha Jayasinghe currently Manager Advisory and Extension at A. Baur and Co. He has previously worked at the Tea Research Station Deniyayay.

This forum was sponsored by Ceciliyan. All refreshments, including lunch and transport was provided by Ceciliyan. The main aim of these forums is that we educate and provide the latest research findings to our small holders so that they can be more productive and grow more tea.
