Fresh from the Farm: Happy Earth Day

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Apr 17, 2017 7:46:39 AM

Earth Day is this Saturday, April 22. There are lots of great ways that you can help support our environment this week and beyond. Throughout the week, don’t forget one of the big ways that you demonstrate your commitment to sustainability: your Boston Organics box. By choosing to buy organic, you say no to polluting synthetic pesticides and fertilizers and yes to farming practices that help promote soil and environmental health while keeping carbon in the soil. Keep yourself nourished as you take some extra steps in the spirit of Earth Day, and enjoy the bounty of your box and the planet.

Fresh from the Farm: Shifting Perspective

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Feb 20, 2017 9:15:53 AM

All the snow we've gotten in the last couple of weeks has us looking at things in a new way. Snow-covered streets seem suddenly different, and the landscape keeps shifting as the snow melts, revealing things that were buried. As snow piled up, or got packed down into slippery ice, reliable paths suddenly seem strange. This shift in perspective can help us recognize what we usually take for granted, and look at them in a new light. This week, we are looking at things sideways and reconsidering familiar foods.
