Sign Up Now for Summer Harvest Boxes (5% discount)

My husband and I got this CSA last year and really enjoyed it, especially the news from the farm, we really felt like we were finally "getting" an understanding of where our food comes from.  More info on this year's CSA below . . .--Joanna

Organic farmers Chris Bodnar and his wife Paige Dampier of Close to Home Organics in Abbotsford are offering shares of their upcoming harvest!  Sign up now for this community supported agriculture (CSA) program to receive a weekly box of fresh local organic veggies for your choice of 16 or 24 weeks this summer.  Half and full boxes are available, if you spend as much as $22 or $35 a week in fresh produce, this is a great program to be part of.  You get exceptionally fresh, quality organic produce and directly support a local farm.


Veggies to enjoy will include: carrots, lettuce, beans, potatoes, rhubarb, chard, cucumbers, tomatoes, scallions/leeks/onions, kale, squash, some berries and other fresh produce (click here to see an example box).  Optionally add a fruit share too for: cherries, apricots, peaches, apples, tomatoes and peppers.  In collaboration with NOWBC Co-op, harvest boxes can be picked up from any of 30 different locations around Vancouver and surrounding areas.  Sign up now for a 5% early bird discount!  Support a local farmer!  Click here to learn more or sign up.

Food

Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.

Transportation

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

7 discussions

Housing

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
