Never before has sharing been this caring | Dr. Pheello Lethola (lead consultant, donor services, South African National Blood Service)

In this challenging time of the Covid-19 (SARS-CoronaVirus-2) outbreak, with people being encouraged to self-isolate as much as possible, we must remember that essential services need to be kept running. Many services are under major pressure, one of which is the South African National Blood Service.

With people working from home, schools and universities closed, and fewer visitors to Shopping centres where they do blood drives, blood donations have dropped to a point where national blood banks have only enough for three days.

This means there won't be enough blood for those who really need it - for those involved in accidents, for those undergoing operations or those having transfusions.

Dr Pheello Lethola, Lead Consultant for Blood Donor services, is on hand to tell us why it's safe to continue giving blood, and the steps the SANBS are taking to ensure your safety, while ensuring we can save lives.

Got Pollution? Be the Solution! | Winnie McHenry (Upcycle | Founder)

Winners - not binners.

That was the first thought when finding out what Winnie 'Upcycle' McHenry was up to.

Landfills are filling up to capacity. There's plastic pollution in our oceans. The 70s and 80s notion of 'consume, consume, consume' is not only outdated, but should be outlawed!

Fortunately there are some people who are doing something drastic (and not just by cutting the plastic).

Winnie holds close to the thought -
Don't throw away. It can be used in some other way. And she's training people - up-skilling them - to think the same and how to do the same. And create their own businesses.

She shares with us how we, and corporates, can be less wasteful and more environmentally conscious, and creative with the waste we create.

Dig it! The Gardening Masterclass. | Mike Rickhoff (Lifestyle College | Senior Lecturer)

From soil to supper, Gardening had its ups and downs. With people getting back to their roots and coming down to earth, the want to know more about how to grow your own or to enhance your livings space - and your life - has become a must have.

As numbers of people entering into horticulture and landscaping worldwide have dwindled, the demand for people who are able to create beautiful working works of art outside, or those who are able to provide food security, has grown exponentially.

Lifestyle College in Johannesburg is the only non-university learning facility that offers qualifications in Hirt and garden design. Michael Rickhoff runs us through what it's all about, what to expect and how a career in the Green industry - no matter your age - is a growth industry!

Everything's coming up Roses | Anja Taschner (Ludwigs Roses)

October is the month of the King (or should that be Queen) of the plant world to make themselves known in SA.

Roses are the plant that conjure up visions of love, not just through their good looks, but the memories their scent evoke...

Long thought by many to be particularly pernickity, difficult to grow and in need of far too much attention, Roses have proven their worth in water scarce gardens around the country. As one of the top Rose breeders in the country, Anja Taschner demystifies the lore of these beauties, and tells us more about the latest Named Rose to come from their stable in honour of Thuli Madonsela.
