Week 3: 18th of January

You are currently viewing Week 3: 18th of January

This week a novelty in our vegetable package! We present to you the Dutch ginger. Every raw salad comes to life with some grated ginger sprinkled through it. We often get questions about the method of cultivation, so in the middle of winter this type of root grows beautifully in cold greenhouses. Similarly, we can say that the sweet potato, which was in previous packages, is grown in the ground. Then a plastic sheet is put over it to preserve the heat of the soil. So there is no gas involved here as with the ginger.

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

In next Wednesday’s vegetable package:

  • 150 grams of Dutch ginger from Gert van Brakel of Sint Annaland
  • 1 pumpkin from De Waog
  • 350 grams chestnut mushrooms from Heereco
  • 600 grams parsnips from Roozendaal
  • 400 grams kale from Landzicht
  • 400 grams purple carrot from Peter van der Erve of Goudzwaard
  • 450 grams yellow beet from Peter van der Erve of Goudzwaard

We also sell: Haagse Sambal, chocolate, bread, eggs and cheese.

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.
