Box Program and Recipes

IMG_0341

How does it work?

Inside your box you will find local and organic produce every week. The boxes are 
prepared for pick up on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, after 4pm. If you need to pick up
your box on a different day or cannot pick up your box this week, please let us know! 
There is a $10 deposit on the box your first week. Don't forget to bring back your box 
before Tuesday each week to receive new and fresh produce!
There are two box sizes:
- Medium ($30 dollars -- 1-2 people )
- Large ($45 -- 3-4 people)

 

There are two types of boxes:

Organic Box – This box is entirely organic. We alternate BC items with items from the rest of North America.
                   Although this box is not entirely local, there will be more variety of vegetables in the 
                   winter months!

Local Box – This box is Vancouver Island and BC only. Organic items will be given priority but there will
                  sometimes be items that are local, yet not certified organic.
