Amateur gardeners receive the means and the know-how
An eager group of kiwi families will be taking their first steps towards sustainability this year thanks to the Hand over a Hundy scheme and the generosity of Matamata business Daltons.
The scheme is a oneyear challenge to young families to learn to grow and produce their own vegetables, a challenge that these families are benefiting from in a number of ways.
Anna Milson and her family, from the Waikato, became involved in the project this year.
Each family is given $100 in credit, to buy
for all the essentials their gardens.
Their challenge is to then generate a hundred dollars, either by saving money or selling produce, which they then hand over to another family.
The initiative was launched by NZ Garden magazine’s 2011 Gardener of the Year, Jade Temepara.
Challenge: Anna Milson and family, from the Hand over a Hundy project, tend their garden.
