Ulusaba Helps To Raise Money For Charity During ‘Arbor Month’

Last updated on

At Ulusaba, Sir Richard Branson’s private game reserve in South Africa, the guest experience goes beyond the adventures of the bush and into the lives of the surrounding communities. This year Ulusaba will join forces with ‘Reel Gardening’ to celebrate ‘Arbor Month’ for the entire month of September 2011.

The goal for Arbor month is to improve the quality of life and create sustainable settlements by giving low-income communities vegetables at their homes in South Africa.

In efforts to further enrich a guest’s experience and in line with Ulusaba’s commitment to social responsibility, Pride ‘n Purpose, Ulusaba’s charitable arm, will this year provide guests with the opportunity to purchase a ‘soup garden’ for families in the local villages. The ‘soup garden’ is a box containing pre-fertilized seeds that simply need planting, regularly watered and six weeks later will provide vegetables to make a healthy soup consisting of carrots, onions, cabbages, spinach and beans.

Guests will have the option to purchase individual vegetables and herb strips to add to the ‘soup garden’ and get their hands dirty by helping with the planting if they wish!

‘Reel Gardening’ has developed many products to enable and empower communities to implement their own sustainable food projects throughout South Africa to help alleviate food shortages and promote self-sustaining communities.
