Here at Green Connect, we’re passionate about transforming our food system and helping people eat more sustainably. We do this by selling chemical-free food from our farm and by helping people grow their own food. Can we support you in your home growing journey?

Did you know?
Leeks are part of the allium family and are related to onions, shallots, chives, and garlic. They have a sweet, mild, onion flavour and are much more versatile than most people think! You can use them in the same way as onions or shallots in most recipes and are great in soups, stews, pastas, risottos, and more. They can also be grilled or roasted on their own to create a delicious side dish. Leeks last up to 2 weeks in the veggie crisper in the fridge and should be cut and washed well before cooking.
