<strong>Thank you Edmonton!</strong> This summer we had a fantastic time introducing our new look to the Edmonton Community at the Folk Festival and the Fringe Festival in August. We were able to connect with thousands of people and share our story of local, organic food produced by real families and available right here in our city for delivery by our team at The Organic Box. <strong> Growing Better Together Fund</strong> We partnered with the Organic Alberta Council this summer to raise money for development of their ongoing educational programming for youth in Alberta. All the net proceeds from the festivals will be donated to the council to support this program development. Organic Alberta is the not-for-profit society made up of all certified organic farmers and producers in Alberta and works tirelessly to promote local, organic food production in our province and to education Albertans about the values in eating healthy, locally produced food.

All the entries are in and we’ve selected the winners. We had so many excellent entries this year that it was really hard to choose, so we decided ultimately to draw winners from everyone who participated.

Once we have tallied the final results for our fundraising drive I’ll let everyone know how much we raised for Growing Better Together Fund. <strong>Lets Keep Growing</strong> At The Organic Box we are always growing, always looking for ways to get better, and always trying to find ways to fill more of your shopping basket with Alberta and BC food products. We are growing better together! Have a Great Week! Danny Co-Founder, The Organic Box.
