How Does Nourish Your Roots Raise Money?

LMST Home and School has been chosen by Nourish Your Roots to be a part of their great farm-box  fundraiser for our school to support healthy food initiatives like an edible garden. Each farm box will be selling for $30 (we keep $8 for every box sold).

 

What’s In The Farm Box?

Each farm box will include a variety of seasonal fresh local produce such as carrots, potatoes, turnip, and depending on the farm/availability, a selection from apples, beets, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cranberries, kale ,leeks, onions, parsnips, pears, sweet potatoes and squash with a focus on root vegetables.

 

Fantastic! How Do We Get Started?

Students will be bringing home an envelope and information handouts on Tuesday, November 15. They will use the envelope provided to track order names and collect money (cheques payable to LMST H&S). The information handout acts as a receipt for the customer to pick up their box.

 

Important Dates:

  • selling period is November 15-25, 2016
  • orders and money due to the school on Friday November 25, 2016
  • pick-up of farm boxes are on Wednesday December 7, 2016 from 2:30-6:00pm in the school playground (look for white tent). If December 7th is a storm day and schools are closed, delivery will be rescheduled for Thursday, December 8th.
