Gardening week blooms
While some Kiwis are enjoying home grown veges, many are going without vegetables altogether. So this National Gardening Week everyone is being encouraged to grow-an-extra-row to share with neighbours, community pantries, food banks and other local food donation agencies. Popping a few extra seeds in the dirt does not require much effort but could mean so much for another family in need. To help get your extra row under way Yates is lending a helping hand. Just register online at https://www. yates.co.nz/national-gardeningweek/this-year/2021/ between now and October 25 to receive a free packet of vege seeds. Once you’ve grown your veges to share please visit Yates website to find a list of the organisations in your area that would welcome your donation of fresh homegrown veges. National Gardening Week aims to foster a love of gardening with a focus on growing not only plants but friendships, strong communities and closer connections with nature. Whether it’s a few pots, or an extensive garden, everyone can experience the joy of gardening.
