Deze week in het pakket / this week's package

Next week’s package has something special: Yacón! Originally from the Andes, these tubers can be eaten raw and taste like fresh apple/melon, with the crisp, juicy texture of water chestnuts. So add them to fruit salads, hot dishes, stir-fries or deep fry them! We will also enjoy the last vegetable from our 2023 harvest share at Hoeve Biesland – leek. Around a third of the leeks next week are from the harvest share and the rest are from a supplier. Did you know that we work with various local farmers, gardeners, producers and entrepreneurs from South Holland, Zeeland, Flevoland and Limburg? Find out more about our suppliers here.

We hope you like this package again. Please don’t forget to change your status before Sunday 8 pm if necessary.

Help needed for the Gymzaal

The renovation of the Gymzaal is still going on. And many hands make light work! Do you like odd jobs and would you like to help us out with the finishing touches? Read here which jobs are still waiting for enthusiastic volunteers and sign up.

Also, help at the market or the packaging-free shop is always welcome. You can sign up via the market schedule to help on Wednesdays. Or sign up here to help out at the package-free shop on Saturdays.

Time to party!

Next year, Lekkernassûh will exist for 10 years! Let’s celebrate with each other! Do you like to party? Do you have creative ideas to pay attention to our 10th anniversary and feel like organizing something? Sign up by sending Liane Lankreijer an e-mail (bestuur@lekkernassuh.org).

Paying with Timebank hoursYou can use your Timebank hours to pay for your vegetable package, but also, for example, cheese or products from the packaging-free store. You earn Timebank hours by, for example, helping on the market. Knowing more? Then look here.

Do you have a surplus of Timebank hours? Please spend them at the market or package-free shop, or (if you don’t manage to spend them all), please donate them to Lekkernassuh! Ater the summer, we have a big shortage of hours, because there are more going out than coming back in.

Package-free shop
The package-free shop is open every Saturday from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the Gymzaal. Longer opening hours call for more volunteers. Would you like to help sometime? Register via this link. More information about the store can be found here.
