Keeping it GREEN on St. Patty's Day

Posted by Boston Organics on Mar 17, 2019 7:50:00 AM

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.

Happy National Bike to Work Week! This week, bicycle commuters, including a few Boston Organics employees, will celebrate the many benefits of cycling. If you see our cargo bike driver on the road, be sure to give him an extra friendly wave as he delivers your produce. Boxes this week are full of colorful produce, rivaling the brightest fluorescent bike attire. As the weather keeps getting better, we’re sure we’ll see more and more cyclists on the road. We want to keep all members of the Boston Organics Community powered up, regardless of how they choose to get around.

Sweet Facts About Vidalia Onions

Posted by Eric Siegel on May 11, 2015 9:12:21 AM

We mindlessly toss an onion into almost every savory dish we eat, but unless we’re making onion rings or French onion soup, they rarely take center stage. That is, of course, unless we’re cooking with Vidalia Onions.
