Ok so I've been introduced to a pretty amazing woman Kirsten and her social enterprise: Eaterprises and thought I would post this as a network opportunity.
My understanding is that Eaterprises is working towards a fairer, more sustainable and more resilient food system. The opportunity in September is to buy "delightful organic permaculturey citrus fruits" grown in country Victoria. Eaterprises will pick and move the quantity of fruit that has a loving home and we get to collect it from one of two locations around the corner from Moreland (Thornbury and Melb Uni).
Orders close Tuesday 13th September for pick-ups Weds and Thurs next week.
It doesn't get fresher than this AND the quoted price (before transport and admin) is exactly what the farmer is getting paid for fruit as it leaves his (David's) property!
To give you an idea Navel oranges are $3 a kg, juicing oranges $2.40; pink grapefruit $3.5 and yellow Wheenys $2.40. Lemons are $2 but why not just borrow some from a neighbour's overladen tree!?
Visit Eaterprises Shop for more details and fingers crossed my excitement isn't misplaced!
