Welcoming our Community
One of the wonderful perks of purchasing produce from a local farm is that you can connect with the people and land that grow your food.
Our veg box customers are part of an amazing community of people that supports and enables a more local, ethical, and sustainable food system in the Illawarra. Without the support of our community, the Green Connect farm and fair food enterprise simply wouldn’t exist.
And so, as we welcome the world to Wollongong for the UCI Road World Championships this week, we are excited to formally invite you to join us for our next Veg Box Customer event at the farm!

Feature Veg: Kohlrabi
A member of the brassica family, kohlrabies are related to broccoli, radishes, cabbage, and more. They are a stable veg in Germany and Northern India, and are delicious, healthy, and easy to cook! They taste a bit like a milder and sweeter broccoli stem and can be cooked and eaten in a similar way too. Try slicing them and dipping in hummus, roasting with other veg, boiling in soups, shredding in salad, or cooking with pasta. Make sure to peel the bulb before cooking. You can als eat the leaf and stem, in addition to the bulb, so nothing goes to waste! Cook the greens and stem like kale or silverbeet.
