Local Veg Box Scheme
Therese Stowell and Jean Bergin, two Herne Hill community activists, have started a local veg box scheme, Local Greens. It is a non-profit venture which is aimed at building a sustainable, secure food supply for the local area in the face of climate change and peak oil.

Local Greens is a not for profit weekly veg bag scheme set up by four enthusiastic people living in Herne Hill and East Dulwich. We provide the local area with great tasting, seasonal veg from small organic or spray-free farms, which are as close to SE London as we can find. In fact the closest farm is less than 11 miles away.
- Great veg nurtured from the soil with minimum intervention from farms who we work in close partnership with
- Minimum packaging and transportation so we can pay the farmers a good price for their produce
- Collected by you locally – often on the day it was picked
