Wollongong’s freshest and healthiest: fruit and veg boxes

We sell weekly fruit and vegetable boxes to the local community, with pick-up points throughout the Illawarra and home delivery available to most of Wollongong. Support fair food – food that is good for those who grow it (fair wages and good jobs), those who eat it (healthy and organic) and the planet (local and chemical-free).
Email us at [email protected] if you’d like to join our mailing list to be the first to know when it is available.

Good for You

All our produce is chemical-free, meaning we use organic principles (but are not certified so we can’t use the word “organic”). There are no chemical fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or other nasties on our farm.

Good for People

Our farm provides employment opportunities for former refugees and young people.
We train and support people in jobs that help the environment and the community. 

Good for the Planet

Green Connect’s farm is in Warrawong NSW and our produce is picked as close as possible to when we deliver it to your door or pick-up hub.
The bunch of spinach, sprig of rosemary or head of lettuce you’re preparing for dinner on a Tuesday or Wednesday night was still in the ground that morning. Now that’s fresh!

Fresh, local, chemical-free fruit and vegetables, largely grown on the Green Connect farm – an award-winning social enterprise in the Illawarra.

  • Local
  • Seasonal
  • Chemical-free (no pesticides or other nasties)
  • Weekly or fortnightly
  • Pick up from locations across the Illawarra, or home delivered between Austinmer and Kiama on Tuesday or Wednesday (depending on location)
  • Pause, cancel or change anytime (by midday Monday each week)

Each week you’ll get a range of produce directly from our farm in Warrawong. Fruit, vegetables and herbs are grown on-site by Green Connect staff – mostly young people and former refugees. We also source some produce from other organic growers.

Want really good produce that also supports the local community?

Green Connect sells local, seasonal, (uncertified) organic produce, grown by young people and former refugees, to cafes, restaurants, hotels and caterers.
We work together. You tell us what you need, and we tell you how much we can grow and at what price. If it works for both of us, we’ll plant to meet your needs.
This kind of relationship is all part of building a fairer food system. You get food that is good for those who eat it, those who grow it and the planet, and we are able to secure our future. Email us at [email protected] for more information.

Farm tours – see for yourself

It is important to know where your food comes from. We hold regular tours of our farm to allow visitors a friendly and informative behind-the-scenes look at the work that goes into producing our food – from seed to vegetable. Visitors will be able to touch, smell and taste their way through our 11-acre farmlands, and have the opportunity to meet our pigs, chickens and maybe even sheep (who are a bit shy). We also hold Farm Tours for Families that are aimed at children. This is a 1-hour tour which includes a taste of something from the farm and a planted seed to grow at home.
