Local vegetable growers have been co-ordinated to grow crops that are supplied to local people through a “vege box” scheme. Boxes are packed with a wide variety of whatever produce is available that week. There is no choice of what you get, but we do have a trade table, so you can swap some items if you like.
Subscribers commit to at least two weeks in advance by paying a refundable deposit. This allows security to growers and the scheme, creating a stable market. Two types of subscription are available: “whole box” (suitable for a family of 3-5, or a vegetarian couple) and “half-box” (suitable for couples). It’s also fine to share a box with friends or neighbours.
Whole box: $50 per week (deposit $100)
Half box: $27.50 per week (deposit $55)
Concession deposit: $20 (no concession price currently available on boxes)
The fortnightly newsletter is posted on the website. If you wish to receive notifications when a new newsletter is posted, please email the co-ordinator.
Further information about subscription can be found on our Vege Box subscription page.
Information about the motivations for initiating this program can be found on our Local Food for Local People page.
