We will continue to deliver for free within Folkestone & Hythe during December and can now also offer postage options outside Folkestone so you can share with friends and relatives. The Locavore Growing Box is designed to fit through a letterbox, so delivery is completely non-contact. Deliveries take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. If you are volunteering with us, you can arrange to collect from one of our garden sites.

For every Locavore Growing Box that we sell, we’ll be making a growing kit available for free to a local household. These will mainly be distributed through Martello School, but if you would like to nominate someone who could use a bit of extra support at the moment please get in touch – locavore@customfoodlab.org
