It's been a busy week here at Boston Organics. In addition to the normal hustle and bustle surrounding the seasonal produce from our network of organic farms, we've also been busy with a number of exciting events!

As the last of the summer harvest trickles in, our farmers are preparing for the first big frost. Row covers and hoop houses will help our New England farmers extend the local growing season into late autumn, and we'll continue to source our organic fruits and vegetables from local farms for as long as possible.

October is both Fair Trade Month and Non-GMO Month – a reminder for us to pause our busy lives for one moment and to reflect on the current state of our food system. With the school year in full swing and the holiday season quickly approaching, this is a good opportunity to think critically and learn more about the food we eat and where it comes from!
The Boston Bike-Friendly Business Bronze Award
Promoting a healthy lifestyle in a mindful and sustainable way is a major part of Boston Organics’ mission as a company. We do that primarily by making it easy for regular people to eat fresh, nutritious food every day, but we also encourage all members of the Boston Organics community to build and sustain positive, healthy habits.
Genetically Engineered Foods:
A community film screening and discussion
Join with Massachusetts GMO labeling advocates for a screening of the documentary Genetic Roulette (60 minutes) followed by a discussion about what GMOs mean for Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and how we can work together to keep our communities safe and healthy.
Every so often, it's important to take a step back and consider the effect that your actions have on the world around you. The coming year promises to be an exciting ride, but as we buckle up for 2014, we wanted to reflect on 2013 and the impact that our work has on the environment and our community.

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!
*Because we are not a qualified organization as defined by the IRS, the donation will not be tax deductible.
