Order for Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

We've got another great order coming this Tuesday with a mix of greens, veggies and fruit.  Don't miss the fabulous fruit share too!  It looks like I have about 3 extra full boxes still available so please contact me today if you have not reserved your spot!  I can work it out to have it at the location nearest you for pick up.  Locations include: Miami Springs, South Miami, Southwest Kendall, Cutler Bay, Redlands, and Homestead.  For this week only our Redlands host is out of town and members of this group will pick up with Marta, our SW Kendall host who is just off Eureka,  west of the turnpike.  Her address is: 13601 SW 178 St., Miami, FL 33177.  Her number is 786-314-3767.  She is very easy to get too, but if you are a Redlands member and need to make a Homestead pick up instead, don't hesitate to contact me by text: 786-251-1000.  Please make sure your name is included with the text.  Thank you!

If you would like to sign up for our free e-newsletter, send me a quick email with your name and email address.  Included in the newsletter are great recipe ideas for the current produce box, local events geared to eating and living  healthy, as well as the complete meat price list for special orders.  We also have convenient online payment options available only through the newsletter. 

Want to promote a local event or have a "green" business?  I can include your information, upon approval, in a future newsletter.  Send me your information and we can talk!  Fees for advertizing help to set off our co-op's business expenses, help us to keep our prices low and our groups full so we can best serve you.  It's a win-win!
