Becca’s love for Graze|plus giveaway!

Hey guys, its Becca here.

stick around to find out about the GIVEAWAY!

So far i have received 7 boxes and mine come very fortnight and i have loved every single one but on the odd occasion i don’t like 1 or two of the snack but at this price i can not complain!

A snack box is £3.99 with some exceptions to the sharing boxes which are £15 and some other ones but they are only a pound dearer than the regular boxes or a pound less than the regular boxes. Now in sainsburys and other shops you can get one graze snack for £1.20 so per box you save 60p and every 60p adds up right? If you get one box a fortnight you could save on average £15.60. It doesn’t seem a lot but everything adds up you could buy a new top for £15.60. Also you don’t have to worry about being in when your graze box arrives as it fits threw most if not all letter boxes, great for busy people.

another benefit of the graze boxes are:

 A GREAT GRAZE PROJECT I LOVE

this project means so much to me personally because I am a huge believer in locally produced products and helping those in need of money get a better brighter future.

Graze are passionate about farming and where food comes from, so when they had a chance to start their own School of Farming they jumped for the opportunity

The school is based in Kabbubu, a village in heart of poor rural Uganda, and it helps local people flourish themselves out of poverty by teaching them farming skills and supporting them through their first few growing seasons.

Graduates of the school are able to turn a modest plot of land into a sustainable resource that can feed a family of four and earn extra cash  to pay for school fees, health care and family essentials. This makes a massive difference to these people’s lives and future years/ generations.

Who is The School of Farming is run by?

its run by Mr. Augustine, a huge believer in the power of education and has dedicated himself to teaching farming skills and turning around the fortunes of those in his community. Working together Graze and Mr.  Augustine created these principles:

1. develop the best farming techniques for the area

The school vs. traditional methods

Mr. Augustine tirelessly tests new crops, varieties and methods to find those most suited to the ground in Kabbubu.

his students have managed to produce ten times the yield compared to traditional farming methods and each season sees the yield increasing even more.

2. teach these techniques to as many local people as possible

Mr Augustine runs a new course each growing season (there are 3 a year in Uganda). He is currently training other teachers and working with the local schools to increase the reach of the School of Farming.

3. support our students through their first few growing seasons

Mr Augustine and his team of trainers assist all of our graduates through their first few seasons to ensure all the lessons are put into practise and the full benefit of the course is reaped.

4. ensure our students get the maximum from their produce

Make sure that the students and graduates get the most from their harvests by giving ongoing advice on the best ways to store their crops and when they should take their crops to market.

Graze are also working on setting up a farmers cooperative to help all the individual farmers to get even better prices still for their crop.

5. bring pride to farming

Sounds  simple but one of the challenges Graze face is that people don’t want to farm in Kabbubu. Farming is seen as a low status activity for women and poor but also failed crops used to be the norm. “Go and grow some cabbages” was a well-known local insult

already, graze have seen a change in attitudes  from the success of the students. Classes are now half male and half female and have a very large waiting list of farmers who want to join.

if you want to try out graze for the first time and get your first, fifth and tenth boxes free you can use this link and I can then donate £1 per person who signs up to the Graze School Of Farm.
