WHAT IS FROM THE GROUND UP (FGU)
From the Ground Up is Kingston’s award winning weekly organic veg and fruit food scheme.
We bring local people together to access local, affordable and seasonal organic food.
HOW FROM THE GROUND UP WORKS
1. You buy online as normal
Browse FGU’s wide selection and place your order for pick up or delivery.
And best of all you don’t have to buy a box, helping to prevent food waste.
2. Volunteers pack your order
Producers and suppliers send your food to us where volunteers from the local
community pack your order. You can help out too, it’s a great way to meet like-minded people.
3. You receive your food
Your food is delivered the same day it’s packed, either to your selected
pick up point or to your front door by bicycle.
Your order is always packed by volunteers to bring the community together around food.
We also hope to connect people through courses on growing and cooking seasonal food in the future.
WHEN IS THE SHOP OPEN
The online shop is open from 8am on Mondays until 2pm on Wednesdays.
This gives our suppliers and producers enough time to collate and send your food ensuring it’s as fresh as possible.
WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY ORDER
Collection is available on Saturdays from 11:30 am to 12:30pm and alternates each week between the pick up points below.
