Dear Checkers,
In response to your statement today
I would like to let you know that I was not contacted by your team in connection with your promotion.
I therefore wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself.
My name is Claire Reid and I am the founder and CEO of Reel Gardening (
We locally manufacture our patented biodegradable color coded seed tape which is a proudly South African innovation.
I would love the opportunity to manufacture the volumes you require as I would be able employ lots of South African moms and make an impact on our local economy.  We are able to source local seed and we can also included the organic soil nutrients that the plants will need before transplanting as well as the environmentally friendly version of the soil disk you are currently using.
We can produce the volumes you require with the seasonally appropriate local natural seed and employ hundreds of unemployed moms in the process. Reel Gardening manufacturing these large quantities will result in the donation of Learn & Grow Garden Kits to thousands of schools and communities through our #reelgiving initiative.
We would like to work with you to expand our Learn & Grow School programme. As we are a social enterprise we donate seed tape to schools in need so the more we sell the more we can give. This you tube video shows you what our Learn & Grow kit is. It would link in nicely with the Learn and Grow section you have placed on the your Little Garden web page.
We have been doing this for over a 8 years now and would like to utilise this opportunity to get more kids growing while creating both social and local economic impact. Its never too late to start growing together, the Reely South African way.
I look forward to hearing from you,

Kind Regards,
Claire Reid
Founder and CEO of Reel Gardening
