Green gift alternatives for Mandela Day

Happy Earth Day – 22nd April 2018
April 20, 2018

“A garden was one of the few things in prison that we could control.

To plant a seed, watch it grow, to tend to it then harvest it, offered a simple but enduring satisfaction. The sense of being the custodian of this small patch of earth offered a taste of freedom”

– NELSON MANDELA –

 

With Mandela Day on the horizon, Dandylion’s focus shifts to edible plants and vegetables in particular.

Corporate clients often choose to get involved with community gardens, spending their 67 minutes digging vegetable beds, planting seeds or seedlings. Planter boxes are a popular option where space is limited; allowing a wide variety of veggies to be grown with relative ease and greater success than in typically poor soils.

She Shwe Planter Pots are a new ‘truly South African’ innovative introduction. The planter pots are made from recycled billboard material covered in traditional shwe-shwe fabric. These DIY Kit’s contain all you need to grow an individual veggie from Reel Gardening® seed strips, and make excellent desk drops and give-aways.

For more info on the Shwe Shwe planters view our Mandela Day catalogue.
