Everyone is excited about the latest edition of the Checker’s “Little Garden” that hit stores recently and charities are asking for donations of your doubles.


Cape Town, South Africa (07 September 2020) – The ‘Little Garden’ promotion at Checkers is a favourite across all South African ages. From young to old, everyone is excited about collecting the flowers, herbs and vegetables as part of this promotion.

The ‘Little Garden’ promotion at Checkers does well every time and this time, the company turned to local seed companies and manufacturers to create their stock. This is excellent news! But this story isn’t actually about Checkers; it’s about charity.

Not everyone who shops at Checkers will probably be keeping their ‘Little Garden’ boxes, or if you have more than you need, we have a recommendation on what to do with your unwanted boxes; donate them!

Rubi’s Rainbow Of Hope, which is based in Cape Town, asked their supporters to please donate any or all of the ‘Little Garden’ boxes collected to their food garden projects. These food garden projects are being run in Khayelitsha and Lavender Hill. You can reach out here if you are based in Cape Town.

The Angel Network, based in Johannesburg, is also asking for them to be donated for their school garden project. You can reach out here if you are based in Gauteng. They previously asked for donations of seeds and are still accepting these as well.

Charity Begins With Me, based in Johannesburg (North), is collecting the boxes for their community garden which feeds children and the elderly on a weekly basis. You can reach out here.

Do you know of any charities that are also collecting these ‘Little Garden’ seed boxes?
