Green Connect Veg Boxes

Green Connect veg boxes

Sign up for local, seasonal, chemical-free veg each week

Green Connect sells a weekly Veg Box packed with local, seasonal and chemical-free food. It’s the delicious way to support food that’s good for those who eat it, those who grow it and the planet.

Green Connect is a social enterprise – a different kind of business. We recover waste and grow fair food. And we employ and tap into the ideas and talents of former refugees and young people in our community to do this.

With our veg box we grow jobs at our farm in Warrawong, and help build a fair, sustainable and resilient food system.

As a Veg Box subscriber, each week you’ll get a range of different herbs and veg that change week-to-week. Before each season starts we’ll let you know what to expect (and let you exclude a couple of things you don’t want).
