The June Acre75 Gathered Box shipped coast-to-coast last week! The June box featured products made by five different small town Canadian businesses, putting money back into five local communities.
This season's box was all about the outdoors - enjoying sunny days in the garden, indulging in fresh fruits and veggies, going to the woods and taking time to relax with a good book. We are so happy with how it came together!
We have a few no-commitment, one-time purchase June boxes available here.
Here's a peak into the June box:
If you are new here, Acre75.ca is our online store where we sell gifts and goods handcrafted in small Canadian towns. Each purchase on Acre75.ca supports a small town business and puts money back into small communities in Canada. $1 from every sale is also donated to rural mental health initiatives. In addition to the online store, we also have a seasonal subscription box called Acre75 Gathered. Each box contains a gathering of items made by small town Canadian businesses, delivered every December, March, June and September.
