It’s a beautiful morning in Raleigh, NC to be driving to Jubala Coffee. The objective of this trip? To enjoy one of their highly addictive sweet biscuits with maple bacon, cheddar cheese, & an over-medium egg with a hot cup of coffee. To make things even sweeter, Jubala composts their extra food waste.
A common question we receive from our members around the holidays is whether we collect and recycle Christmas trees. We do not, because this service is already offered through your municipality yard waste service. Just make sure to remove all ornaments, lights, and stands!
In case you haven’t heard, we are currently knee deep in one of the most delicious events of the year in Raleigh. That’s right, Downtown Raleigh Restaurant Week is upon us! Produced by the Downtown Raleigh Alliance, this week is a great opportunity to support the local Raleigh food scene while checking a few restaurants off of your bucket list! Not only can you nab some great deals, you may find yourself tasting special off-menu items, curated by the chef just for Restaurant Week.
A community garden is more than a place for growing food and flowers. It is a place for people of different ages and backgrounds to gather, learn, and work together to create something beautiful, useful and healthy. This doesn’t discount the importance of the food that comes out of a community garden. Not only is it as fresh as possible, it is also nearly as local as it can get. Now imagine the difference in taste!
We are so lucky! We keep talking about this amazing community that we get to interact with every day, so naturally we're gonna show off how awesome y'all are.
