Afternoon Folks,

Welcome to our first Wednesday veg box newsletter! As you should be aware now, we’ve changed our delivery days, here’s a reminder:

  • Wednesday: Ayrshire, Glasgow south
  • Thursday: Stirling, Edinburgh
  • Friday: collections from our shop, Glasgow north

We have great news in that our building warrant and planning application for our Big Plan have been approved! We have relaunched our loan stock offer, so if you’d like to invest us, register here.

If you haven’t already, join our veg box community in our Facebook group, and enter our Month of Munch competition by posting a photo of your veg box creation with the tags #locavoremm and #locavorevegbox. For recipe suggestions, check out our veggiepedia.

For those of you who will receive your veg box on Friday, our online shop on the Open Food Network is open until 11pm tonight.
