Strathyre Girls Home
Strathyre Girls Home in Kensington Johannesburg is one of the DotUnity beneficiaries. Mint has been involved in supporting Strathyre since early in 2012, and has embarked on a number of quarterly hands-on initiatives since the relationship got off the ground.
On 26th April 2013, the team of Mint Gardeners planted the 2013 Winter vegetable patch. We are very grateful to Monkey Fountain Nursery and petshop for donating the seedlings, compost and potting soil for this initiative. ​ On Friday 23rd August 2013, no physical hands-on work was undertaken by the Mint Team. However, Mint was delighted to hand over 60 school bags which we donated to the girls.  ​
