What's in the box?

Each week the boxes contain a selection of 8-12 different veggies, all started from seed and grown using organic methods at The Green Acre market garden in Marengo. Almost everything in the box is harvested on the morning of pick-up day.

This is 100% local, seasonal, fresh, nutrient-dense produce.

Each week's box is a little different. In spring you can expect lots of leafy greens, onions and leeks, and quick-growing veggies like radishes and baby turnips. Our summer harvests include more fruiting crops like tomatoes, peppers, and zucchini. In autumn and winter all the root crops are available along with pumpkins and lots of brassicas. We aim to include plenty of staples like onions, carrots, and lettuce, as they become seasonally available.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a great way to:

  • support a local farmer by buying direct and in advance

  • support a farmer growing a diverse mix of crops, instead of a monoculture

  • source food grown with care for the soil and wider ecosystem, and without synthetic fertilisers and pesticides

  • reduce refrigeration, packaging, and transport footprints significantly

  • eat food that is truly fresh and full of vitality and flavour

Grown in Apollo Bay, in-season, healthy, and delicious!
