Vegetable basket – go for it!

Our village’s community-supported agricultural scheme at “Les Jardins du Renard“, which comes in the form of a weekly organic vegetable basket, has just started the 2016 season.    The association that acts on behalf of the farmer is taking on members.     You sign up for the year and can pay in monthly installments.    Each week  there’s a basket of freshly picked vegetables ready to take home.  No, you can’t choose what you take, but ever heard of a varied and balanced diet?!    We have been huge fans for the past five years and highly encourage all you local readers in the Pays de Gex and Meyrin/Vernier part of Geneva to have a try.   In addition to getting fresh, organic produce, with zero food miles, where you and your children can see for yourself where it’s come from, you are supporting a family in your community, keeping agricultural land chemical-free, and promoting biodiversity.  A no-brainer!

Here’s a film my other half made, to give you an idea of what it’s all about:

Go for it!
