Madrona Farm hosts an incredible fundraising event called the Chef Survival Challenge - This incredibly fun (and food celebrating) event raises funds for the Big Dream Farm Fund for farm conservation. Important to us is that this fund will be available to organizations dedicated to farmland conservation, sustainable farming education and outreach. (also known as our BELOVED FARMERS).
Produced by Darin Steinkey and Share Organics
Early in the Fall one of our first customers, Christine Bloomfield, took us for a tour through her garden. Even though Christine grows her own food and you can often find her at farmer’s markets around town buying up any fresh veggies and fruit she can get her hands on, Share Organics is an important piece of her produce puzzle.
The customizable box allows her to choose the things she may not be able to grow in her garden or purchase at the markets and Share’s growing inventory of dry goods and cleaning products means Christine doesn’t have to make too many trips to the grocery store.
Click on the audio clip to take a walk through Christine’s garden and hear what she has to say about Share Organics.

"I am always delighted with my box, but yesterday's was especially great.
I just can't get over the freshness of everything. The heritage
tomatoes remind me of my childhood: the chard looks too good to eat! and
all the beans. Thanks for what you do."

"I am relocating to Vancouver, so I will have to cancel my much-loved
standing order with you. I have talked up your service with all of my
friends all along and will very much miss my Wednesday deliveries! The
quality of the produce delivered far surpasses anything I have been able
to buy from the shops. Indeed it is only on par with the fruit and veg
my mum grew for us in our back garden as kids.
I wish you all the best. "
- H. Labrosse

of sustainability benefiting farmer and consumer.
