For Sale By Dealer
What better way to get your kids into gardening, growing stuff. For them, it is an adventure to watch what they’ve planted and looked after – be it sweet strawberries, fast-growing radishes, endless supplies of lettuce, or tall sunflowers. Whatever they nurture, it will also grow their sense of responsibility. It will make the little people proud and happy, to be able to contribute something to the family’s dinner table.
Apart from all else, it’s a great parent/child activity
The planter rests on two casters, so that an adult can move it around, but not the youngster.
Part of the planter is a set of gardening tools (metal with wooden handles), a watering can, a chalkboard and several handmade ornaments.
Delivery in Cape Town can be arranged, shipping by courier to SA’s major centre’s like Jhb or Dbn costs presently R195,- and takes about three work days.
Most other SA locations can be serviced for R220,-
It’s a Useful Gift
One of the best things you can do for a child is helping them discover nature, and a garden is the ideal learning ground for children of all ages. Their experience can develop into a life-long, healthy appreciation of gardening.
Children are Natural Gardeners
They’re curious, like to learn by doing, and love to play in the dirt.
Working in a garden, a child can experience the satisfaction that comes from caring for something over time while observing the cycle of life firsthand.
Gardening gives children a chance to learn an important life skill, one that is often overlooked in a standard school curriculum. Gardening is also a great way to teach environmental awareness by exploring the workings of nature.
