Food Security is a growing concern for many. And the goal to eat healthy only adds to that concern. Those of us who don’t have access to space can join a community garden to grow their own. See the article on page 6 of the Gala Herald about one of the gardens in the Gibson neighbourhood. Another option to consider is ordering fresh vegetables to supplement your diet.
Plan B Organic Farm is a family owned & operated, certified organic vegetable farm in Flamborough. We grow 30 acres of veggies, greens & fresh herbs in the fields and under cover in our greenhouses. Established in 1997 by Rodrigo Venturelli, Alvaro Venturelli and Melanie Golba, Plan B is Hamilton’s original organic Community Supported Agriculture farm. Back in the 90s we chose the name “Plan B” because it symbolized our desire to provide our community with an “alternative” to veggies grown using “chemical agricultural practices”. Our crops are Certified Organic by Pro-Cert Canada. We offer pick up or delivery of organic vegetable boxes that you can build to suit your household. In addition to the organic produce our customers can order free range eggs, sourdough bread, and a wide variety of grocery items from local makers. We deliver to the Greater Hamilton Region every Tuesday, year round. Check out our website www.planborganicfarms.ca to see what we offer and place your order.
