I’m sure by now most people realise that their food choices have environmental as well as health implications, which is why growing your own is a smart move. Even if you only have a balcony or small courtyard you can still grow an amazing amount of fresh produce (see next week’s post on growing rocket in a tray).
Planting Season is an initiative growing momentum that promotes this ‘grow your own’ philosophy. Their tag line calls on South Africans to unite on a single day to plant an organic vegetable in their home or office.
23 September is that day and you can commit o making a change in South Africa by signing up on their website, where you will also be able to download a free guide on organic gardening.
