Saint Patrick’s Day observes the death of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. People spend the holiday celebrating Irish culture and traditions including parades, Irish step dancing, drinking green beer, or eating Irish cuisine. Did you know your chance of finding a 4-leaf clover is 1 in 10,000?
As tradition goes, wearing green on St. Patrick ’s Day will make you invisible to pesky leprechauns, otherwise be weary of getting pinched! Different cities hold different traditions – Chicago colors the Chicago River green with a natural vegetable dye, and Hot Springs holds the world’s shortest parade (98 feet). While I don’t think Mayor Walsh will approve dying the Charles River green, we still have an awesome parade! Boston’s St. Patrick's Day parade will start Sunday March 17 at 1:00 pm at Broadway Station.

Winter has started even if it still feels like fall. Boston has had record high temperatures for winter so far (2018). As we anticipate for our #BosSnow, we thought it was a good time to remind our customers about steps they can take to insure that their delivery isn't damaged by the cold.
We deliver organic fruit and snacks to hundreds of offices in the Greater Boston area, but many of the people who work in those offices don't know that we *also* deliver organic produce and groceries to homes.
Boston Organics has started a new series of posts for Meatless Monday recipes in order to offer ideas for vegetarian dinners and also to encourage a reduction in weekly meat consumption. This encourages a more sustainable lifestyle. Meatless Mondays are a way to show our customers that vegetable-based meals can be hearty and delicious and that they are a nutritious and environmentally responsible way to eat. This week’s featured recipe is for BBQ Beet Burgers.
