New “just food” service in Boston

Busy people in Boston and nearby communities have access to a new service that will pick up and deliver local food from the farmers markets right to their door.  One of the criticisms of Community Supported Agriculture has been the time it takes to stop by the farm.  While many people, especially those with children, value this experience – others find it inconvenient.  There is no longer an excuse not to buy, “just food now.” This service also provides incentives for changing other aspects of your life (like quitting throw-away plastic water bottles for a more sustainable alternative).   Check out the Gogreenologist.
