Now that the days are getting longer and we’ve all had a good rest over Christmas things are really starting to ramp up over at the Veg Box People lockup.
Over December, in between making sure that Manchester was supplied with loads of brussel sprouts, we began plotting and planning for the new season. We’ve had lots of crop planning meetings with our local suppliers to ensure we can sell as much local produce to our lovely customers as possible. We are very excited to be working closely with the team over at Farmstart this year, buying even more of their veg, and supporting the training of future growers and our future suppliers.
There are going to be lots of things for you to look out for this year as all our plans come to fruition. We are going to have new collection points springing up across Manchester in the next few months to make getting a veg bag accessible to more people. Also, after the huge success of the reusable bags, we are going to roll out new ways we to reduce our packaging. For more information you can check out our website vegboxpeople.org.uk or our social media @vegboxpeople.
All in all we are pretty excited about 2022 (along with the new season crops as they begin to trickle into the veg bags).
If you would like to get a veg bag from us please pop over to our website https://vegboxpeople.org.uk/ to see the bag sizes available and the ever growing list of collection points across the city and beyond.
