The new environmentally-friendly promotion of Woolworths, Discovery Garden, has now been excavated
Eager shoppers can pick up a range of herbs, flowers and vegetables from tomorrow
Shoppers can also grow their own flowers, such as violas and violets, with a free interactive growth chart and a textbook available to support the growing journey.
The promotion is an extension of Woolworth's & Fresh Food Kids program, which informs them about where their food comes from and encourages healthy eating habits.
Hoping to get Australians to include more fresh fruits and vegetables in their diet, Woolworths is also giving away a bonus seedling package when customers spend $ 15 on fresh fruits and vegetables in a $ 30 store.
The supermarket decided to launch the program after research showed that more Aussies like to grow their own herbs and vegetables.
More than 40 percent of Australians do not grow their own herbs and vegetables, while seven out of ten would like that.
WHAT CAN YOU COLLECT?
There are 24 different vegetable, herb and flower seeds to collect and grow.
Beetroot, bok choi, cabbage, carrots, kale, lettuce, onion, radish, tomato and spinach.
Basil, chamomile, chives, coriander, cress, dill, oregano, parsley, arugula and thyme.
Dianthus, pansy, snapdragon and viola.
At the same time, more than a quarter of parents admit that their children do not have a good understanding of where their food comes from.
Sarah De La Mare, manager of Woolworths Fresh Food Kids, said that Discovery Garden is a & # 39; natural next step & # 39; is to involve families and to enable them to understand how their food is growing.
& # 39; In addition to all the positive mental, physical and economic benefits of gardening, we also want to discover the joys of growing your own fresh herbs, vegetables and flowers – from planting the seedling to celebrating the first sprout to harvesting and eating what you eat has grown, & Mrs. De La Mare said.
& # 39; After planning this program for the past year, we cannot wait for our customers' gardens to flourish throughout Australia. & # 39;
Dr. Shane Norrish, CEO of Landcare Australia, said it is important that young people are aware of the natural environment.

& # 39; With a program such as the Woolworths Discovery Garden, children of all ages can learn about biodiversity and how to grow their own food, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; By actively making their hands dirty to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs, Woolworths enables the next generation of Australians to create their own living garden at home or at school.
& # 39; Landcare plays an active role in helping young people connect with their local environment, and this great Woolworths initiative will help create Landcarers of the future. & # 39;
