The Gabriola Food Hub is a local business that is bringing together amazing Gabriola farms and connecting them to more people here on our island. We are 100 per cent local. We are combining our efforts in order to better serve our community and pool our abundant diversity of vegetable and fruit crops. We call our CSA Box the ‘Veg Box,’ and it will run for 20 weeks.
WHAT IS INSIDE:
Each Veg Box will include 6 – 8 different fresh vegetables Grown Right Here on Gabriola. Veg Box customers will be receiving the crème of our seasonal crops: We always prioritize our Box customers so if there is a limited supply of favourites like snap peas or strawberries, you get them first.
It’s always difficult to say if a box is enough vegetables for a certain number of people for one week- it really depends on how many veggies you eat! We encourage our members to think of our Harvest Box as a base: a good start to eating fresh, local vegetables, but they may still decide to buy extra veggies at the farmer’s market or grocery store.
Here is a list of some vegetables you can expect to see:
• summer squash
• salad greens
• sweet onions
