White Violet Center for Eco-Justice partners: B’s are the best!
“One can no more approach people without love than one can approach bees without care. Such is the quality of bees.”― Leo Tolstoy
It’s no secret that gardeners love bees. They help pollinate crops, make honey, and are a welcome sign of a healthy biome. But did you know our love for bees extends to our partners around the area – businesses that are committed to supporting local farms and food? And it just so happens, they all start with the letter “B”!
Two Terre Haute restaurants, The Butler’s Pantry Food Co and Bar Bosco, are regularly using White Violet Center certified organic produce and farm fresh eggs to create some amazing dishes. Both businesses have been able to stay open during the COVID-19 pandemic by offering takeout meals to their patrons.
In more recent developments, White Violet Center produce and flowers can now be found locally at Baesler’s Market in Terre Haute. Since the beginning of June, we have been delivering flowers and select vegetables on Tuesday mornings. It’s exciting for the WVC team to hear how quickly our kale bunches and flower bouquets, also “B” words, are being purchased.
Of course, you can still purchase our produce, eggs, flowers, and more through our Farm Store website where we offer Monday through Saturday curbside pickup, or Wednesday delivery to St. Pat’s parking lot in Terre Haute. You can also find us at the Terre Haute Farmers Market every Saturday at the Meadows from 8 a.m. to noon. But, if you’re looking for a great meal or need to get to the grocery store, “bee” the best and show these businesses some love as a way of returning the love they give to us.
