About green goods express/ Grow next door

Grownextdoor is a fresh food home delivery service created by Marcus Ducheine, Jonathan Cox (our MOS Videography Coordinator) and Aisha Gary. The company was started simply out of our love for eating and preparing good food for our friends and family. Throughout our journey we quickly learned how important organic and regenerative farming is to not only our personal health but the health of the environment around us. That became the core foundation of what we offer our community – connecting them to responsibly grown, nutritionally dense, flavor packed foods.

 We do this by primarily sourcing organic or regenerative grown produce and food products, not only to lower our environmental impact but to encourage environmental sustainability, keeping our sourcing radius within 300 miles so that we can support our local food entrepreneurs, decrease our carbon output and stimulate the local economy, and practicing seasonal crop rotation so that we ensure the most nutritious, flavorful and diverse food varieties to promote optimal health and well being. 🌱
