Box-schemes in Cape Town and surrounds, Gauteng and Kwazulu Natal.
Part of living a sustainable lifestyle for me means supporting local initiatives which offer seasonal, fresh and organic produce. Over the past few years, quite a few local box schemes have emerged so I’ve listed the ones I know of below:
Cape Town and surrounds:
Marcelle and Maurice Curtis offer organic dairy, free - range poultry and a weekly veggie delivery of seasonal organic vegetables in and around Cape Town. They are also to be found on various markets througout the week. Find out more here: www.shoporganic.co.za/simplywholesome
An online organic market, with a wide variety of products, including fresh organic fruit and vegetables, dairy, tea, seeds, household and body products.
They usually deliver on Thursdays to areas in and around Cape Town but can also deliver country-wide via courier. They also serve Stellenbosch and Somerset West.
