New collection point at Grow Hackney

You can now collect our local organic fruit and veg bags at Grow in Hackney Wick.

Hackney’s favourite vegbox scheme, Growing Communities, now has 16 collection points across Hackney, enabling you to pick up your fruit and veg at a time that suits you rather than having to wait in for a delivery.

Grow is a brilliant space with an ethos that really chimes with GC's values: putting people and planet above profit. And it’s our only pick-up point where you can enjoy a coffee or a pint or one of Victor's amazing cocktails on a waterside terrace when you come to collect your bags.

The scheme helps you eat tastily, healthily and locally – some of our salad and other veg is grown on organic plots in Hackney parks. You’ll also be creating real, positive change at the same time – supporting farmers who are growing in non-polluting, planet-friendly ways; supporting low-carbon, low-waste distribution; training young people in organic food growing; and helping to campaign for better, fairer food and farming.

The collection point at Grow will be open on Wednesday afternoons, Thursdays and Fridays.

If you live in Hackney Wick and could help us spread the word by putting up a poster or flyering your building, please contact Chen.
