Shares on wheels! Featherstone 2 Wheels that is…

We’ve gained another fantastic, local, sustainable small business partner: Laurie Featherstone of Featherstone 2 wheels green delivery is now offering to pickup and deliver shares to Kawartha CSA members who can’t make a pickup, for just $8!  An eco-friendly option for those days where time just isn’t on your side…your food will come right to your door, by bike!

Laurie has biked more than 30 000 km in deliveries since starting her bike delivery biz in 2008.  Her main customer has been the local, organic, wild food industry including home delivery for 2 vegan caterers, and now she’s looking to partner with some local CSAs – and we’re gonna be her pilot project!

So now, on those days where life happens and you just can’t get to your share, you can contact Laurie by email, text, tweet, FB message or phone and she’ll get your food to you (info at the bottom!).  Ideally she’d like at least a day’s notice, but will take delivery info up to NOON the day of to help accommodate really bad weather or a change of plans for that day’s pick-up.

All deliveries will be at the end of the day – around 7 pm…please indicate your complete address and if someone will be home (if not home maybe leave a cooler out or a good place to place the bags!).  If you live in an apt building, some extra info in regards to buzz codes and/or arranging with concierge will be necessary.  It does help to have your phone number in the event she can’t find you and/or needs clarification!

For more info, contact Laurie!

    Thanks Melanie! I really enjoy delivery and even more so cause I get to pedal all over Toronto. Plus, I hope to motivate others to ditch the car or at least use it less, so much can be done on a bike. If you get in a jam and can’t get your stuff give me a holler and I will zip over to the market around 7 pm at night and gather your share with any extra things you wanted..Laurie Featherstone
