Order your veggie box
We are pleased to confirm that, despite the recent drought, our farmers have been growing great veggies! We are asking if you can support these farmers by buying surplus vegetables that they have while we do a “slow-relaunch” of the box scheme.
While they are busy planting vegetables for the full re-launch in the new year, we would like to encourage you to support the farmers by buying surplus vegetables that are ready for picking. You will get great organically grown veggies and they can sell their vegetables, so it is a win-win!
Over the next few months (October to January) we will be providing an “interim box” due to the limited variety and availability of vegetables, but this will change when we move into summer. As in the past, we will facilitate the process by collecting the veggies from the farmers in the townships and delivering it to the collection points closer to your home.
Three easy steps:
- Please fill in the order form below – you will get a confirmation.
- Make an EFT payment in advance, preferably a full month if possible to help reduce admin and overheads. We also testing SnapScan – see below. Please confirm your payment via email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can prepare your box.
- Collect your veggies from your selected collection point.
We propose to have only two collection points this year, but aim to expand in the new year again:
- Starke Ayers on Liesbeek Parkway in Rondebosch (2pm-4.30pm) 021-685 4120
- Health Matters in Sea Point, Medical Center Arcade, 11 Kloof Road (1.30pm- 4.30pm) 021-434 5490
- Riverine Rabbit in Cape Town CBD at 81 Church St, opposite Heritage car park off Buitengracht near Wale Street (1pm-6pm) 021-424 7204 (NEW COLLECTION POINT)
There will be 10 vegetables in each “interim box” and aimed at a medium family at a cost of R170 per box per week. Some of the organically grown veggies you can expect include beetroot, celery, beans, lettuce, cabbage, spring onion, spinach, carrots, fennel, coriander but this could vary depending on availability.
