Vegie Boxes

Rod May's vegie boxes are available weekly over summer and sporadically during winter.

When you join, you pay for 2 weeks (for the box you are picking up and the following week's box) and then you pay weekly after that. Hence you are always a week ahead with your payment to ensure a box for that week.

You may want to share a box or get one fortnightly or you may even not want one for a particular time. This can be arranged by email but you must always have $35 in kitty.

If you have a simple recipe using any of the veg in the boxes, why not leave it as a comment below so we can all try it.

The boxes have variable content based on what is available at different times of the year and are a bargain at $35 for a box of yummy local vegies!  Pick up is after 3pm on Wednesdays. Please park in the street to keep the driveway car free and safe for people (especially kids)

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is an important way to:
  • guarantee our food supply
  • support a local farmer
  • make sure that the soil is cared for without synthetic fertilisers and pesticides
  • reduce refrigeration and transport needs
  • substantially lighten your environmental footprint by getting your food locally
To join the box scheme please email Su.
