$40 for Two Weeks of Local-Produce Delivery ($80 Value)
On Mondays or Fridays, The Root drops off produce crates in the morning or evening, which keep edibles fresh for four or more hours in the shade. Clients should leave their crate out the following week for reuse.
Partnering with regional farmers to support sustainable agriculture, The Root provides patrons with access to locally grown fruits and vegetables at the Urban Harvest Farmer's Market and through a weekly home-delivery service. Aside from providing easy access to the freshest foodstuffs, The Root investigates each farmer’s growing practices to ensure customers only receive produce that is not treated with high levels of chemicals and pesticides. Each delivery includes information about local farmers and their growing methods along with nutritional recipes and helpful tips for building a third garage out of corncobs. To maintain quality, The Root harvests and transports all produce at an optimum temperature in refrigerated containers, and most customers receive their fresh fruits and vegetables within 24 hours of picking.
