Day 406 - Christchurch South Fruit & Veggie Co-op established

This morning, representatives from a range of groups in Christchurch South met to establish the Christchurch South Fruit & Veggie Co-op or CSFVC.

The Co-op is a clone of the one that has run out of St Aidens Church in Bryndwr for many years and supported by Christchurch Cathedral.

How it Works
A packing operation will pack prepaid fruit and veggie packs every Wednesday morning for pickup by local community centres who will then distribute to residents who have ordered and paid for the packs the week before.

The first shipment will be on Wednesday May 2 2012. Any group in Christchurch South wishing to join as a distributor should contact Addington Action.
