Please give your order with payment to your site representative. If you wish to pay by cheque please make it out to the representative, and not to FEDAGA. We are asking representatives to cover each site order with one cheque to FEDAGA.
These are unbeatable prices for top quality produce. The scheme only works because the allotment community comes together to help each other. Please consider if you could lend a hand, especially if you are on a large site. By buying through FEDAGA you are helping FEDAGA as well as your Site Association, who benefit by the commission that is generated.
The orders will be delivered to Inverleith Allotments in February, usually on the second Saturday. Each site is required to send a representative to help sort the order and take away their purchases. That's where the hessian sacks come in handy!
