Week 10: 8th of March

You are currently viewing Week 10: 8th of March

Who says winter vegetables are boring? This week, the vibrancy of the colorful veggies is sure to pleasantly surprise you again. We have the deep shades of the carrots, the soft pink-purple of the turnip and the lively greens of the leek and turnip greens. Turnip greens are a sure sign that spring is near: this young foliage can come from various types of cabbage and turnips, and can therefore look different from time to time. Turnip greens are super versatile! Use this often slightly peppery leafy vegetable in a salad, soup or mash, an oven dish or pasta, or they also lend themselves well for stir frying. Basically, you can use them any way you like.

At Hoeve Biesland, your help is needed to get the vegetable garden in tip-top shape. On Sunday, March 12, a vegetable garden day is planned. This day is in the theme of tillage. Raising paths, weeding the milled beds, crushing wood chips, planting, there is more than enough work. Handymen are also welcome for barn and painting work! Sign up through this link.

We hope you like this package again, please don’t forget to change your status by Sunday 8 p.m. if necessary!

Helping hands
Your weekly vegetable box is the result of the joint effort of many participants of the Lekkernassûh community. If you would like to help out on Wednesdays, please fill in the Market schedule. If you would like to participate in another form, why not check out our vacancies.

Bicycle parking
Are you picking up your package from the Gymzaal? Please don’t forget to only place your bicycles in the designated bicycle stands (across the street), to make sure we don’t inconvenience our neighbors. Thank you in advance!

Paying with Timebank hours
You can use Timebank hours to pay for your vegetable package, but also for example for cheese and products from the package-free shop. You can earn Timebank hours by helping out as a volunteer, for example at the market. Want to know more? Check it out here.

Package-free shop
The package free shop is open every Saturday from 11:00 until 13:30. Extended opening hours require more volunteers. Would you like to help? Sign up via this link. More info about the shop can be found here.

Don’t forget to change your status!
If you would like to pick up your veggie package on Wednesday,  your account needs to be set on ACTIEF before Sunday at 8 pm. If you don’t want a Lekkernassûh package coming Wednesday, your account has to be on PAUZE before Sunday at 20:00 h. In this way, we can ensure that we buy in the right amount of vegetables, and combat food waste together. Thank you! More information on how to change your status can be found here.
