After a rather cold and rainy start of the year, it’s now really starting to feel like spring! You can find the spring back in next week’s package as well, for example in the cheerful flowers of the purslane (which are also edible), or the fresh greens of the turnip greens and the Romaine lettuce. Also the tail end of winter is still there, in the shape of root vegetables like parsnip, purple carrot and salsify. Do you struggle preparing salsify? Try and peel them under running tap water!
We hope you like this package again, please don’t forget to change your status by Sunday 8 p.m. if necessary!

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.
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.
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.
