Gifts that Grow

Element - - Upfront -

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. To or­der Child­fund Gifts that Grow visit child­fund.org.nz or call 0800223111.
