One of our alternative livelihoods projects in Sarongge is an organic vegetable delivery scheme. Every Wednesday we deliver fresh, organic veg baskets directly to your door. You don’t even need to be in when your basket is delivered – we can leave it with the reception desk at your office or apartment, a guard or even a neighbour.
All you have to do is choose the size of basket you would like, pay at the end of each month (we’ll invoice you with the amount and the different ways you can pay) and receive a veg box full of a variety of vegetables each week. Delivery costs from Rp 25,000 – Rp 35,000 (depends on distance between our office and your address, but if you’d prefer to pick your box up yourself, you can do so from our office in Utan Kayu.
So why veg boxes? Well, this project helps us to fulfill 3 different needs:
1) To supply Jakarta residents with fresh, organic and fair trade vegetables
2) To cut out the middle man and provide a regular market for Sarongge’s organic farmers who get a great price for their veg, which hopefully encourages other farmers to convert
3) To help GIF diversify our funding for our work. Any profits made from the veg box scheme go straight back into our programs; environment, alternative livelihoods and health.
Price per basket:
Small basket: 1 – 2 people = 70,000Rp
Medium basket: 2 – 3 people = 90,000Rp
Large basket: 3 – 5 people = 120,000Rp
+ Delivery range: 25,000 – 35,000 Rp per basket per week (depends on the distance from our office to your address)
