A workers' cooperative growing food on London's edge in the Lea Valley

How it works

It’s simple. You choose which type of bag(s) you’d like and which of our pick-up points you’d like to collect from, then fill in the online form and make your payment. We then start delivering your bags as soon as we can, in most cases that’ll be the following Wednesday.

We have a variety of bags available and you can chose the one that best suits your household. The bags are available to collect from Wednesday afternoons and at different times depending on the location. See more about our pick-up points  for details of the addresses and delivery and opening times.

The payment for the bags works via GoCardless. Basically, you click the GoCardless link at the top of our online form, and enter your bank details. Then we set up the regular payment as a Direct Debit. It’s really simple and really quick. If you’re just signing up for a trial, we’ll take a one off payment for 4 weeks worth of deliveries.

If this payment method is difficult for you, please contact box@organiclea.org.uk and we’ll see what we can do for you.

If you’d like any more information about the box scheme, the best way of getting in touch is to email us at box@organiclea.org.uk. Alternatively, you can call the Hawkwood Plant Nursery on 020 8524 4994. Please note: we are in the office on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons. If we are not there to take your call please leave a message with a contact number and we will get back to you.

Regular orders: By signing up for a regular weekly bag, you’re helping provide a stable, guaranteed flow of money for our farmers and for us. It helps the farmers plan what to plant and decide how much to harvest each week, and it helps fund all of the wonderful social and environmetal work that OrganicLea does. So thanks!

Holidays: Please do give us notice when you go away! If you do go on holiday or or cannot pick up your bag, we need a week’s notice to cancel your bags. How about getting a friend to pick up your bag and try our veg for a week?

We always ask that you let us know a week before before the next Wednesday delivery for your week away to be considered a “holiday”. Our cut-off point is 9am on the Wednesday. We do our ordering in advance and if you let us know too late, we’ve already ordered in veg and fruit for your bag. – see our holiday policy.
