Hey! I am looking for a community in berlin, where I can get ecological food. Mostly you pay an amound each month and the prices are like a normal supermarket. Do you have any ideas? I live in Friedrichshain! Regards and thanks for reply!

Hey Sophia,

have you heard of community supported agriculture ('solidarische Landwirtschaft' in german)? you pay a fixed amount every month in exchange for your share of the crop. Especially in summer and early autumn months it's supposed to be lots of food. You're also expected to help out at the farm every now and then. Here you can find farms who do community supported agriculture:

I think nr. 3-5 are supplying food to Berlin. I already talked to these ones; http://wildegartnerei.blogspot.de/p/soliwilde.html
they seem really nice...

another option would be food coops, there are more than 30 in Berlin. You can find an overview here:

Good luck !

hey there!sorry for late reply...am part of this coop, which is based in wedding, and open only on wednesdays right now (but you order each sunday night what you want in terms of fresh fruits & veggies, etc)http://www.dickesbee.org/also, we work closely with regiotopia (you can find their info on our site)...they also now offer just biokiste option for individuals! and out of all the other options i know, either through middlemen or direct growers, they are my favorite!best,Kap

heya Michelle...well, if you join the coop, the foods comes to prinzenallee 58, inbetween the U8 stops of pankstrasse and osloer, and by the sbahn wollankestrasse and a series of buses...then members come between 17:00-19:00 for pick-up/hang-out :) or folk send their roommies sometimes, etc...if you sign up as a private regiotopia customer, i am pretty sure they deliver right to your house! with them you can choose between wed and fri delivery, though there is some variation between product choice on different days...not much..but some..hope it helps!ciaoKap

Thanks for the helpful suggestions. I've written to them to inquire and do you have to speak German to help out with the group you're involved with?

Thanks again!
Michelle
