Every year we team up with our friends and neighbors, Bootstrap Compost, to encourage the people of Boston to take the next step towards living more sustainably.
Hundreds of new and seasoned farmers, organic food producers, and sustainable agriculture activists from all over the Commonwealth convened in Worcester over the weekend for the 28th annual NOFA Winter Conference.
Boston Organics works with several community groups in the towns and neighborhoods we serve throughout the year. During the holiday season we encourage the whole Boston Organics Community to get involved, too.
As the local season warms up, we’re buoyant with anticipation here at Boston Organics. We have some spectacular local produce going out in the boxes this week, including fresh dill and chives from Happy Valley Organics and vibrant Adirondack Red potatoes from Nature’s Circle Farm.
We also enjoy the summer months because we get to recognize a number of our favorite local companies and give prizes to our most enthusiastic customers! Read this week's newsletter to learn about your chance to win a weekend trip for 2 to Picadilly Farm.
You'll also get great recipes to cook with this week's fresh ingredients and find out what's coming up as the local season hits full-swing!

This Thanksgiving, Boston Organics is providing an opportunity for you to give fresh produce to those in need.
Each box you donate will provide $29 worth of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables to the Greater Boston Food Bank. The Food Bank will distribute these goods to families in our communities.
Whether you're planning to get a delivery Thanksgiving week, cancelling that week, or not scheduled for a delivery, you can still donate a box! We'll be accepting donations through Tuesday, November 26, 2013.
Thank you for your generous support!
