Do something for the first time!

Summer is upon us! If you’re itching to get outside just as much as we are, here are some ideas to not only make the most of the weather, but also help you get out of your comfort zone. 

Build your own vegetable garden

Apart from the money saving and health benefits, growing your own vegetable garden is a great hobby that gives you some fresh air while also encouraging you to be productive. The rule of thumb is that vegetables prosper in the right soil, with at least 6 hours of sun in order to produce ripe and delicious vegetables. So if you’re looking for a new hobby this summer, head over to SuperSpar, Pick n Pay or Woolworths to purchase some seeds and gardening equipment to get you started. For tips, click here.

Incorporate fresh flowers into your decor

Not only do flowers and plants give the room extra oxygen, but they liven things up and instantly brighten your mood. What’s more, if you’re hosting this festive season, flowers make a great centerpiece for your guests to admire, along with the food spread. Woolworths Food, SuperSpar and Pick n Pay has you covered.

Expand your culinary taste

Experience food of different cultures, life’s too short to not broaden your tastes. Our restaurants do just that, with Mythos whisking you away to Mykonos, Greece with keftethes, hummus and a selection of meze platters. What about Salsa Mexican Grill whose menu creates a fiesta in your mouth with options such as pulled pork, tostadas and chimichanga burritos. If you’re in the mood to try some Asian flavour, KOI has a wide selection of sushi, crispy duck and pak choy, just to name a few. Convinced? Check out our selection here
