What’s in the Box?
An ample and diverse portion of fresh, sustainably-grown vegetables, small fruit, cut flowers, and bread. All produce will be priced and packed according to its comparable retail value at local farmer’s markets. See our Harvest Calendar for more details.
The Pick Up:
You have two options for pick-up days:
1.) Saturdays, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., at the garden, 3005 Lonesome Road, Cedar Grove. (Home or town deliveries only to those who are incapable of coming to the garden.)
2.) Wednesdays, deliveries to churches in Hillsborough, Durham, and Chapel Hill, with boxes available starting at 5 p.m.
* Members may contact Anathoth by phone or email with at least 24-hour notice if they will not be able to pick up their box, and we will gladly save the box to be picked up at another time or date (however, please do make this a habit). If you do not contact us, your box will be donated.
We encourage ”ShareGivers” and “ShareReceivers” to join us for the Saturday workday and/or the potluck afterwards. The purpose is to fellowship with one another, not merely to pick up a box. We will say a prayer of thanksgiving for the food together before it is distributed and the potluck meal is shared.
HarvestShare Program Goals:
- Expand distribution of fresh, organic produce, ensuring food access for more food-insecure people in and around Cedar Grove
- Engage, educate, and empower teenagers in the community throughout the season with the skills to grow and market food and work together collaboratively
- Connect urban and suburban people with rural needs and gifts, and vice versa.
- Develop a church-based market for local, organic farmers (as HarvestShare expands, produce will be sourced from surrounding farms, though still packed and distributed by teens)
- Create an innovative and sustainable revenue stream which will allow Anathoth to deepen its mission and advance a model of an effective, faith-based community garden
To the extent that they are able, all members are required to share the work of growing the produce for at least six workdays throughout the season, which should include joining us for a potluck meal (so bring a dish to share) and, regularly, cooking demonstrations, pizza parties, music, and other forms of fun.
