CAPE TOWN – Checkers has a creative promotion called ‘Little Garden’ with a charity asking customers who receive the free seedling kits to donate them in efforts to aid urban farm initiatives in poor communities.
Customers receive ‘Little Garden’ free seedling kits when spending R200 or more at Checkers which comes in a variety of locally sourced flowers and vegetable seeds in an easy to grow package.
A few charities have been asking for the donation of these easy to grow seed kits in efforts to aid urban farms in communities that are in need of food helping them build and create a self-sustainable garden supplying endless fresh produce.
Rubi’s Rainbow of Hope is a Cape Town-based organisation that has been aiming to provide much-needed aid and assistance to struggling communities during the pandemic recently asking their supporters to donate their Little Garden seedling boxes which will aid their current food garden initiatives in Khayelitsha and Lavender Hill.
