Week 44: November 1

You are currently viewing Week 44: November 1

Even though we are deep in autumn spheres, there are turnips in the package again. Aren’t they called autumn turnips? I ask our gardener Knoot by phone, “You may well call them that but they grew out the same seeds as those turnips seeds earlier this year, do enjoy them because they will be the very last of the year.” Grate them with the purple carrot and make a slightly spicy dressing with them. Let stand for an hour and your raw vegetable salad stands solidly next to a soft endive stew with a creamy portobello sauce. Enjoy!

Your help is needed!

Your weekly vegetable package is the result of the collaboration of many participants from the Lekkernassûh community. In the past weeks, we’ve been struggling to get enough volunteers for the Wednesday market. Can you help out? Sign up using the Schedule market care.

Paying with Timebank hours
You 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 11:00 am – 1:30 pm at the Helena. 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.
