Are you ready for the mission?
Adopt a seed, nurture it then pass it along to those who need it most!
With this new project we focus on homeless shelters located on the outskirts of Budapest,where there is an opportunity for gardening.
Once we have taken the plants there, people living in the shelter will continue to grow them, so they will have access to fresh and healthy vegetables by the summer.
The goal of this project is to make sure shelters have the first important part: the plants themselves. We grow them from seeds, then they will be given up for adoption.
As voluntary “parents”, you will see that with some minimal effort, care and attention you can enjoy the fruit of your labor all summer long. Afterwards, it is up to the social workers and the people living in the shelter to keep on growing the plants. For those living on the periphery of society, it is important to have goals, to see good examples, and to be inspired, so that they can experience that efforts indeed pay off.
Before and during the project, you will be given useful tips so you can be successful “parent” to the seeds.
Vegetable seeds, soil for setting up the gardens and tools are provided by OÁZIS KERTÉSZET gardening center. We would like to thank them for their contribution. Pallets needed for setting up the gardens have been donated by HARTMANN-RICO Hungária Kft., Comlexpress Logisztika Kft., Lush and Zöldbolt. We appreciate the donation.
So: are you ready for the #mission?
