I for one, have spent more time in the homely pursuits of gardening and baking in 2020 than ever before.
And, I have to say, I've enjoyed every minute of it.
Reclaiming that time to use my hands and my heart, to get outside and into the kitchen is something I hope to take into 2021 and beyond.
Hayley & Roger Mason from Settler Hives in Toowoomba, QLD have a thriving business selling seed sets.
Their mission is to encourage people outdoors & into nature, to feed themselves and thereby feeding our bees.
Their business started with two beehives in their backyard. Having realised that beekeeping wasn't the scalable business for them, they are now making a living caring for bees in a whole different way.
These days they don't just keep bees, they feed them!
Wanting to create feel good products to benefit their surroundings and help shape a positive culture of getting outside; Settler Hives was born.
Flowers, herbs and garden greens sourced from the best seed houses in the world, they've created a thriving business.
Ultimately by feeding the bees, we are feeding ourselves.
Instructions for planting are printed on the inside of the lid as well as on each packet of seeds.
Seeds don't have to be used all at once. Re-seal the packet and use them over the year ahead.
Give the gift of getting out into nature!
This is a gift idea for young or old alike.
