Greening with Food Forests

Our aim is to support local farmers/backyard growers offering accessible, inexpensive, healthy fresh food that is inexpensive due to reduced supply chain.

Urban greening and canopy cover has a direct impact on health and mental well being. There’s research supporting the incidence of diabetes2 lowers as people are encouraged to walk under a canopy, especially when hot.

We’re partners of Western Sydney Diabetes, NSW Health https://westernsydneydiabetes.com.au/partners  finding opportunities to provide fresh food locally grown and in your Backyard. So we encourage and incentivise backyard growers to include Food forests or also known as Forest Gardens in the mix.

 

Food forests are use permaculture techniques and help grow more food without too many inputs.  There are many layers from the top trees like a fruit tree, down a layer to berries, down a layer to ground cover. Sympatico – in sympathy or creating a harmony of plant life. It means there is real diversity and reduces weeding and pests become part of the circular nature of the growing area.

As part of this push we are also Partners with Greener Spaces Better Places  

You’ll find us under Horticulture Industry.

Community working together

We're farmers and fed up with the way the food system currently operates.
Our Mission is to provide quality food, pay farmers fairly and make fresh food available at extraordinary prices.
Working together with Western Sydney Diabetes Alliance we have created Box Divvy™.

Pay farmers fairly by buying direct and purchasing as a group. Produce is picked to order.
                  *  Low food miles
                  *  No packaging
                  *  Reduce food waste
                  *  Lower your carbon footprint
            Around 70% is from local growers.
How can we do this?
We do this through community owned and run Food Hubs.

To order you’ll be using the Box Divvy easy & smart ordering App you join a Hub™ & order online with you group.

It connects farmers and food wholesalers directly with your Food Hub so you can get groceries with prices up to 40% less than online supermarkets. Saving you some serious dough on food. 
Profits are directed to lowering prices for members.

You don't need to search for a park, no trolleys, reduced packaging, no food waste plus we have end of week recipes.
 
A neighbour, known as a Hubster, runs your Food Hub and they offer you nutritionally high food rather than energy high processed food.
                 
Box Divvy is a Social Enterprise business and about building food communities. It is also about caring and sharing. 
No fee to join - you can cancel orders when not wanted BEFORE 'Order Creation'.
Two parts to ordering.
1. STARTING ORDER - can take out 3 things. Roughly $20-$25. How much you get depends on how many people in your household.
2. OPT IN to SPLITS. Let's share boxes.
 
If you just want a Fixed Box just take the Starting Order.
What? No Box Divvy Hub in your area?
Maybe someone you know wants to start a Box Divvy Hub. They earn good income & only need  3-4 hours a week. There is also no investment to start a Box Divvy Food Hub. Not a franchise. 
                   Unsupermarket now.
