Labor Day is quickly approaching. For many of us that means a day off from work, for some it’s considered the unofficial end of summer, and in an era past it was also the day you packed up all of your white clothes. This Labor Day we're making it one where we remember some of the origins of the labor movement in the United States and the folks of the Pullman Strike for which the holiday was established.
We’re getting into peak season for local produce here at Boston Organics. Our strong network of growers are increasing their availability each week with exciting new items populating our produce boxes like eggplant, hot peppers, and heirloom tomatoes. As we enter this time of year, we’d like to take a step back and share what it means to us to work within a sustainable and locally-based food system.
