The Lyttelton Harbour Fruit and Vegetable Collective is a joint venture between Lyttelton Community House and The Lyttelton Harbour Timebank in partnership with the Christchurch cathedral Trust, Community and Public Health, the Linwood Fruit & Vege Co-op.
Produce packs vary from week to week depending on seasonal availability and consist most often of at least four types of vegetables and three types of fruit.
An order must be placed a week in advance with your payment at Lyttelton Community House, 7 Dublin Street or the Lyttelton Information Centre before Thursday 12 noon of the previous week or at the time of pick up at the Union Church hall for the following week.
For $12.00 paid in advance you receive a pack of market fresh fruit and vegetables. The coop now offers $6 half packs.
Packs are available for pick up each Wednesday at the Union Church Hall, Winchester Street between 12.30- 2.30pm. If you are unable to pick up your order before 2.30pm, unclaimed orders will go up to the Lyttelton information Centre but must be collected by 4:00pm.
As well as enjoying good quality produce at very affordable prices participants are all learning how to cook things they would not normally buy.
