Are you looking to have fresh fruits and vegetables weekly delivered (in some cases) directly to your home? There are a few programs available in CK:
River Bell Market Garden Box
River Bell Market Garden is an organic vegetable market garden started in 2012 in Dresden Ontario. Owners Joseph and Eraina Grootenboer are offering a weekly box delivery program to households across Chatham, Dresden, Wallaceburg and area throughout the 2014 growing season. For more information please go to their website at www.riverbell.ca
We include the wide variety of fruits and vegetables from our farm. Common and easily utilized staples like lettuce, tomatoes, onions and green beans will be fairly common to the box. Goodies like kale, zucchini, sweet corn and strawberries will be enjoyed periodically. Also, you’ll have chance to try new things like eggplant, fennel and kohlrabi, but only once and a while. Here are some possible box compositions you could expect.
Spring Box: spinach, radish, peas, lettuce, cherry tomatoes
Summer Box: beets, tomato, cucumber, green beans, potato, sweet onion.
Fall Box: lettuce, carrots, broccoli, leek, kale, onion, radish
Winter Box: spinach, carrots, parsnips, squash, leek, onion
