Hepburn's very own community-driven local veggie boxes are back!
Rod May of Captains Creek Organics grows the vegetables and Su Dennett is the co-ordinatotor of the longest running CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) in the Hepburn Shire.
In the summer season, Rod delivers boxes to Su's house in Hepburn on a Wednesday afternoon and you pick up your $35 worth of locally-grown + organic in-season veg.
Also available on Wednesday afternoons are various bulk food staples such as chick peas, lentils, brown rice, salt, quinoa and olive oil, all sourced from local organic producers.
Support your local farmers and get a week's worth of best-ever veggies at the same time!
Su will then tell you when the next box is due and the exact address for pickup.
When you pickup your first box, you pay for 2 weeks is cash (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 can start getting a box at anytime, just let Su know by 7pm Tuesday for a Wednesday (next day) pickup.
You can pause your weekly box order with a week's notice, when you pickup your box.
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.
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 veggies!
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 footprints significantly
- substantially lighten your environmental footprint by getting your food locally
