Did you know that the first organic box scheme as we know it was created by Guy Watson in 1987?
Nowadays, veg box schemes are everywhere and for more than one good reason:
- They help end plastic packaging waste
- They help support organic and biodynamic farmers
- They help people eat healthier, fresher, high quality produce
- They help people try new fruit & vegetables according to the seasons
- They help people expand their cooking repertoire
Get your weekly or fortnightly bundle of fresh vegetables and/or fruit
When you get your weekly or fortnightly box of fresh fruit & veg, the contents will vary week to week depending on the availability of the seasons. You can even purchase extra goods when you come to collect your box, such as oat milk or cow’s milk, bakery items or household refills.
When & where do we order and collect?
Place your order anytime and collect every Friday 12-6pm or Saturday 11am-2pm from our store at 162 Queen Margaret Drive.
We advise collecting as soon as possible as we don’t have a refrigerated space in which to store the veg boxes, and won’t be able to replace any spoiled produce. Uncollected veg boxes will not be refunded but will be donated to our Zero Waste Food bank or one of our local food banks.
We’re interested in setting up more collection points in Glasgow and beyond, so if there’s a group of you who’d like to get veg boxes together please get in touch.
If you’re a shop, community group or cafe with space to store boxes & would like to know more about hosting a collection point, please get in touch.
What are the prices for the different options?
We offer 3 different kind of boxes:
