To Set Up Produce Box Account
All Market items are purchased on this site except
Organic Produce Boxes. Nature’s Garden Delivered http://www.ga.naturesgardendelivered.com/ is an
organic produce delivery company that you can sign up with to receive perfect
produce. Unlike a CSA box you can see your list
beforehand and make changes and exchanges. You will have your own account and
they will bill you directly. A benefit of being a co-op member is you will
receive an $8-$10 credit per box. That’s up to $520 savings a year! Your box
will be delivered to my house on Tuesdays. See Q&A section on www.suwanee.locallygrown.net for sign
Here is the cost of each box including the co-op discount:
NGD allows you to make up to 3 substitutions and
add additional produce to your box. Same with the co-op, there are NO contracts
and NO weekly commitment.
If you sign up to receive a produce box:
You’ll get an email from NGD on Saturdays with your personalized list
cancel, substitute items and add by Monday
Your box will be delivered to my
house on Tuesday for pick up.
How to Place An Order

on Friday morning until 5 pm on Sunday. Members place their order for that week
on our website under the “The Market” tab. You can order all available Market
