We will once again be joining in on this car-free, open-streets event! By the Bushel is an advocate of reducing food miles through sustainable transportation, so we just had to come back!
That being said, we are looking for volunteers to give us some time (minimum 1 hour) during the event to chat with community members, or to help with our set-up or take-down!
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This past Saturday, May 27th, By the Bushel was again present at the long-running Gilmour Street Garage Sale. We have had a great time attending this event in the past, and this year was no different! We had our info booth set up to chat up bargain hunters, a table selling delicious coffee (Kyoto Coffee), tea, and herbal iced tea, as well as a seedling sale table selling a variety of heirloom tomatoes run by Paula of Sun Root Organics (and our Production Coordinator!). We were also very lucky to have two energetic and friendly volunteers help run our booth: Becky, a past employee and longtime supporter and consumer member, and Will, a current Board member and active consumer member.
It is always so important to us to reach out to the community and let them know what kind of options exist for local food access, as well as why it is important to utilize these channels to make meaningful changes in the local and broader food system. Overall, we made some fantastic connections within our community, sharing By the Bushel’s story and values, while hearing your own stories and your own desires within the local food community.
See you next year, Gilmour Street!
Sign up for fresh, local produce all winter long.
By the Bushel is hosting an Open House to celebrate Local Food Month in Peterborough! Open to everyone, this is an opportunity for the community to see the freshness, variety and quality of the produce supplied by our wonderful, local, organic growers. Come out and talk to staff and growers, ask questions and enjoy a good cup of coffee!

Thank you to everyone who joined the farm tour this past Sunday! It was a wonderful time touring the farm and connecting with Lunar Rhythm interns. Seeing a pleasant balance of happy livestock and thriving vegetables only makes us more enthusiastic towards our producer farmers in contributing delicious, nutritious products to our co-operative! Lunar Rhythm Gardens truly sets a precedent for forward-thinking, innovative farms and we are very grateful to have had an inside look at how their farm gets to our table.
Thank you, Lunar Rhythm Gardens!
