Local organic strawberries are ready!!!

Drop by the market stand at the gardens on Saturday or Sunday, or contact us at cogpww@sympatico.ca for more details.

Why buy local AND organic strawberries? Strawberries are one of the most intensively sprayed fruits - and there is no way to peel them. Nonorganic strawberries are highly likely to contain pesticide residue after harvest. When the PDP (the USDA's Pesticide Data Program) releases its annual list of produce samples with residues that exceed tolerance levels, strawberries appear more often than any other fruit or vegetable.
