From the Ground Up, Kingston's own community organic veg food scheme, is now at the Surbiton YMCA on Victoria Road.
Completely run by volunteers and not for profit, From the Ground Up's mission is to bring local, affordable organic food to our communities. We are now at The Surbiton YMCA on Saturday morning, bi-weekly, from 11:30 - 12:30 to collect your pre-ordered food. Our prices are by far and away less expensive than other organic food outlets and supermarkets..why?
1) From the Ground Up is run by volunteers, people who are committed to seeing safe affordable food available to all, not just for the few
2) From the Ground Up is a collection scheme - you pick up your orders at the YMCA from 11:30 - 12:30 on collection day - this means lower prices to you because we don't need to finance cars, drivers, petrol etc
3) From the Ground Up sells food at prices marginally higher than wholesale to cover our costs - we are not looking to make a profit, just to provide a service to our communities
From the Ground Up is part of Transition Town Kingston - a volunteer, community led organisation that seeks to find ways to address the challenges of climate change...such as buying food grown by earth friendly and sustainable methods.
