Use your Garden for Good this summer!

Use your Garden for Good this summer and help families in rural Africa grow a better future.

Get together with friends and family* and hold a garden-themed fundraiser of your choice!

Whether you hold a BBQ with family, sell plants to neighbours in your front garden or open your gardens to the public, the funds you raise will help provide vital tools and training for families to grow enough to eat.

Proudly supported by Toby Buckland, Send a Cow Patron, Gardener & Broadcaster
“I’ve seen the work of Send a Cow first-hand in Ethiopia, and I’m still in awe at what they achieve. By sharing practical advice with farmers and families, they help some of the poorest people in Africa grow their way out of poverty.
They in turn share what they’ve learnt with their neighbours and so on, transforming lives, unlocking creativity and the potential of whole communities. I’m proud to support their work.”

How your Gardens for Good event will transform lives in rural Africa

Raising £66 could provide 10 families with garden gadgets.

Simple items like a fork, a rake and a hoe, can make a world of difference. By having the right tools, families like Nusula’s can transform their small plots of land into thriving gardens!
