GROW LOCAL CO-OP 2018-2019 SEASON
THIS SEASON HAS ENDED! LOOK OUT THIS SUMMER TO SIGN UP FOR 2019-2020 SEASON!
Here at Green Thumbs for Healthy Bodies our mission is to reconnect our community to local food. We envision a world where all people have access to local, organic & sustainably grown food!
As a part of this mission we're launching our 2018-2019 Co-Op for this coming fall. In case you aren't entirely familiar with this concept, it's where you are directly supporting local growers & farmers while receiving a weekly or bi-weekly share of the freshest seasonal produce. Our produce will be coming directly from the Food Yards we manage in Hollywood, FL as well as other local growers & urban farmers in the South Florida area. Our major partner will be St. Simons Farm with the Urban Vegetable Project who is USDA certified organic.
What’s in the box?
Since your share is harvested the day before pick up/delivery, your box will have the freshest selection of veggies, leafy greens & herbs! A weekly share contains 8-10 types of vegetables (3-4 leafy greens, 3-4 vegetables, 2-3 herbs & the occasional fruit). For more specifics see the list below.
How does it work?
On either a weekly or bi-weekly basis (whichever your preference) a share of fresh veggies, leafy greens & herbs will be hand-picked just for you & made available on Friday or Saturday for pick up at varying locations. Delivery options also available. The shares will continue throughout our entire 2018-2019 growing season, with the last veggie box being delivered/picked up on May 4th.
*For the week ending on December 29 there will be no veggie boxes.
Pick Up/Delivery Options:
Our main pick up location will be Om'echaye Wellness Center in Hallandale Beach, with another location in Miami Springs. Delivery is available for $5 each share if you are located in Hollywood or Hallandale Beach. If you're located outside those cities it's $8 each share.
What if you can't/don't pick up your box?
If you're unable to come pick up your box, delivery can always be arranged for an additional fee (referenced above). In the situation that a share is never picked up, we will donate your share to the local food bank or other needy families within our community.
Here are some of the goodies you can expect in your share!
Kale (Curly, Dinosaur & Russian)
Lettuce (Salad Mixes)
Shares are available on a limited basis, so act fast & reserve your share now!
