The Woodlands Organics
After more than a year traveling back and forth from farms and natural food stores to discover favorite new items and plan their mission, The Woodlands Organics founders Lori and Mike McDonald put their wheels to use delivering boxes of organic and locally sourced foods to abodes throughout the area. Members of the burgeoning cooperative—a sister branch of Central City Co-Op—find boxes on their doorsteps bundled with a rotating selection of seasonal produce from local, organic, and family farms. Each leafy coffer includes nothing but sustainably grown fruits and vegetables, whose chemical- and GMO-free status boasts a wealth of health benefits. In addition to produce, The Woodlands Organics stocks personal pantries with other groceries such as nut and seed butters, organic meats, and fair-trade coffee. Members also receive co-op day passes to bestow on friends or family, along with newsletters packed with recipes, coupons, and embarrassing baby photos of their newly bundled vegetables.
