Land Rover has announced an extension of its community Hope Gardens initiative in the Western Cape, to celebrate the current series between the British and Irish Lions and the Springboks. 

Land Rover Hope Gardens are long-lasting initiatives intended to uplift communities, not only with a continuous supply of fresh produce, but also agricultural and environmental education. The latest Hope Garden project was headed up by former Springbok Rugby World Cup winner Bryan Habana and Zelda La Grange, former Private Secretary to Nelson Mandela. 

This new Land Rover Hope Garden has been established at Greyton Community School near Hermanus, in the Western Cape. The garden was designed by a local landscaper and includes the equipment and materials to help grow the vegetables, fruit and nut trees that will provide food to the Greyton community. It will also be used by pupils to learn about gardening and environmental science.
