Produce is collected, prepared and delivered by The Allotment shop in Innerleithen. Currently we only deliver in Tweeddale. We offer one size of veg box for the price of £15.00. This is a selection of seasonal fruit, vegetable and herbs. We aim that 100% of the produce in the box is sourced from small-scale growers in the local community, but depending on demand this is not always possible and boxes will have to be supplemented with produce from other suppliers outside of the community. Our produce is not ‘certified organic’ as it comes from a wide range of small-scale growers, but we all follow organic growing principles.
We aim to provide a fair and sustainable deal for local producers and consumers and keep all revenue in the local economy. Local growers receive 50% of the revenue (or the equivalent in produce/seeds/plants if preferred) and The Allotment and Food Communities receive the other 50%. If you are a local grower and are interested in getting involved, please get in touch.
If you would like to volunteer, we would really appreciate your help! There are lots of things you could do. We especially need help harvesting produce and preparing veg boxes. Please get in touch. We’d love to meet you!
