What do Solar, Blueberries and Beehives Have in Common?

by Claire Minnaar

I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly thinking about the world that my children will live (and raise their own kids) in one day. Will it be safe? Will it be beautiful? Will it have animals? And will it even exist? That’s why I’ve been making a concerted effort to preserve what we have – not for my sake, but for the sake of my kiddos.

So now you might be asking, “but what do solar, blueberries and beehives have to do with it?” Well, moms – these are just three ways that YOU can help save the world and provide for your children at the same time.

Solar Power

Every time the power trips, I’m reminded of the strain that our energy sources are taking – not just in South Africa, but across the globe. And don’t even get me started on the harmful gasses and toxins that those dreadful power stations emit to power our lights and ovens. Solar power is eco-friendly, and it’s reliable – So it’s no surprise that more and more households and businesses are switching to solar and installing panels as far as the eye can see.


Blueberries are a superfood, and boy-oh-boy do my kids love them! I like to think of them as nature’s candy and, when you’re a modern mom who’s constantly on the go, you’ll be obsessed with how versatile these babies can be. From smoothies and lunch box snacks to cake decorations and salad ingredients – the list goes on and on. OZblu berries are a particular varietal of berry that is sweeter and has a longer fridge life – plus they are cultivated with water-wise methods. Double score!


It’s a sad fact that bees are dying out, and those in the know believe that the world as we know it will cease to exist if these little honey producers go extinct. That’s why it’s more important than ever to ensure that we support the responsible production of honey, and the safe handling of our precious bees. Next time you pick up a jar of honey from the shelf, read the label and do research to find out how it’s made, where it’s from and how it’s processed – for the good health of the bees and your family.

So, what do these 3 have in common?

I recently learned of Fedgroup’s new Impact Farming initiative, giving you and me the opportunity to not only invest in a long-term fund, but rather to invest in the world that our children will one day inherit. With the simple click of a button, you can invest in a sustainable blueberry farm, beehive, or solar farm. For instance, you can buy one of 96 000 blueberry bushes planted on the OZblu smart farm and earn anywhere between 12 and 14% in annual returns. This gives a whole new meaning to investing in the future of your children, doesn’t it? Visit https://www.fedgroup.co.za/ventures/impact-farming for more information.
