Gifts that Grow
Childfund is encouraging New Zealanders to reconsider the traditional Valentines Day bouquet, and sew the seeds of love instead with a gift of vegetable seeds to a family in the developing world. A single packet of seeds for $16 can yield up to 640 plants, depending on the vegetable (options include tomatoes, eggplant, spinach, lettuce, mustard, water spinach, cauliflower or chilli). Purchasers receive a special gift card explaining the gift and how it will benefit the recipient, and also get a ‘gift back’ via a full tax credit.
