Hold on to your seats! Look at what I have found! Its called Food Connect and it is great!
A seasonal fruit and vegetable co-op based in Salisbury (there is also one in Sydney for you Sydney siders), where South East Queensland farmers bring in their stunning produce and it gets distributed into boxes for a fruit and vegetable box scheme!
I know what you are thinking.... Salisbury, thats not near me..... wait...get this....a truck collects all the boxes and delivers them to 'City Cousins' in Brisbane City. 'City Cousins' are people who put their hands up and act as community collection depots.
Wait, it gets better, you then find someone in your local neighbourhood who is a 'City Cousin' on the Food Connect website and pop over to their house and collect your box! Community building too!
Voila. Local, seasonal, low kilometers and high *density fruit and vegetables! (Apparently *fruit and vegetable density is going to become a buzz phrase soon, as it relates to how much actual goodness is in the produce. Watch out supermarkets, word on the street is your stuff isn't very dense man!)
Above is the Gourmet Box which I collected yesterday from around the road! Can you believe it! There were a few more mushrooms, though I had a nibble.
p.s the box is actually a standard cardboard box, though I wanted to pretty it up for you and place mine in a crate.
