We are going to help you to celebrate with us!

DYK about National REAL Vanilla Day?

In 2014 LittlePod launched NRVD to raise awareness of the vanilla orchid which grows on the equatorial belt, the vanilla farmers who cultivate it and why it is vitally important for us to support them for the sake of our planet!

This year we want to raise awareness of the important marine conservation work that the charity Blue Ventures do in Madagascar and Dr Vik Mohan who provides essential education for women helping them to look after their families. 

This year we are encouraging  EVERYONE to join in by holding a vanilla infused dinner party with friends…  To help you raise a toast we are offering  6 bottles of vanilla beer to the first 50 entrants and an opportunity to enter our competition to win a year’s supply of Vanilla!

How to take part:

Sign up to News on the Pod Vine (or if you’re already signed up get in touch through our contact form!) and Austin will send you an entry form with a menu to inspire you…
