THE LONDON PLANE LARDER SHARE


We’d like to announce the launch of The London Plane’s Larder Share, our Community Supported Community (CSC) subscription program.

Our intent is to build a sense of community at The London Plane, among those who live and work in -- and love -- Pioneer Square. We want to bring people together in our retail and restaurant spaces, as well as provide people with things we love that bring people together around a table and make daily life better, such as delicious whole foods, locally grown flowers and great wine.

CSC subscribers will receive a weekly box of goods from The London Plane, from April through October. Each box will have a mix of prepared foods cooked by our kitchen, homemade bread, wine selected by our wine staff, and retail goods from our shop.

Along with the box, subscribers will have access to special community events at The London Plane, such as classes, dinners, parties, and talks. And, on a monthly basis, The London Plane will pick up a lunch tab of your choice (lunch for two, excluding wine/tip/tax).

To subscribe, or to send us a question, please email info@thelondonplaneseattle.com or visit our on-line store. Subscriptions are still available!

Details:

The boxes are available for pick up weekly, on Wednesdays, April 2014 – October 2014
28 weeks
$2,500 per subscription (about $89 per weekly box)
