Vegie Bags – what’s in the bag

There are usually a dozen or more different items in the bag, selected according to what is in season.  We try to include a range from the following groups:

  • Potatoes
  • Onions, garlic, leeks, shallots
  • Greens for cooking
  • Salad greens
  • Fruiting vegetables
    (peas, tomatoes, pumpkin etc)
  • Fruit of different kinds

In the interests of good health,  Grow Lightly seeks to include a wide variety of different fruits and vegetables – some of which you won’t see in the supermarkets. A variety of colours is also important, just for the pleasure of it, and also for possible health benefits. Many people believe that different food colours have specific health benefits: red to ward off cancer, orange/yellow for heart health, green to preserve eyesight, blue/purple to protect the brain. So we try to include a range of colours each week.

Grow Lightly is always on the lookout for growers in southern Gippsland who will be able to supply some of these foods.
