Despite the challenging times we are currently facing, our local farmers have either been growing food throughout the winter in greenhouses and high tunnels or are beginning to plant for the upcoming months. Healthy PlanEat is a new sustainable food startup that exists to connect organic farms to local customers.
Its founder, Rosemary Ostfeld, built a website where people can find farms near them and place an order to pick up at the farm. Healthy PlanEat is currently accepting orders for pick up at Star Light Gardens located at 54 Fowler Avenue in Durham. Star Light Gardens is currently offering a variety of organic greens which can help supplement your trips to the grocery store.
Orders can be placed on the Healthy PlanEat website Saturdays through Thursday by 9 pm for pick up on Fridays after 2 pm or Saturdays after 10 am at Star Light Gardens, 54 Fowler Avenue, Durham, CT, 06422. Orders can be placed here: https://www.healthyplaneat.com/star-light-gardens Healthy PlanEat is also crowdfunding to build a new website so more farms can be included.
