What is an Alive & well subscription box and how does it work?

​An alive & well subscription box is a box full of delicious live-cultured food and probiotic sodas, delivered monthly to your doorstep! It is similar to a C.S.A. model in that you pay the whole subscription cost upfront. Unlike other common subscription boxes where you receive a box of products from a variety of  companies, everything that is in the alive & well subscription box is made by Marley, with love – especially for you. With the purchase of a subscription you also get exclusive monthly newsletters from Marley with recipes and stories of her probiotic adventures and 20% off our CATERING, COOKING CLASSES and WORKSHOPS.


​How much does it cost?

The alive & well subscription box costs 650$ for the whole season which works out to just over 100$ per month including delivery, newsletters, videos, recipes and other surprises! There is also the option to get a half share subscription for the season which costs 425$ including delivery. In the half share, you still get 6 boxes delivered every month throughout the season, you just receive half portions of everything. If you jump in the season after June, contact me (or check the homepage) for a pro-rated price for the remaining months.​How long is the subscription?The 2018 subscription lasts 6 months  from June 2018 until November 2018


​How many ferments will I get each month?

An alive and well subscription box is an adventure! The amounts, recipes and flavors will change with the local season, depending on what is fresh and because of this (and because it is fun!) there is no set menu – which is part of the experience! – however, you can trust that there will be plenty to go around and share with friends…well, if you are feeling generous…


Here is an example of what you might get in a monthly box:​

– 1 L of  hascap kombucha

– 1 L of pear ginger Kefir water

– 1 L of peach Jun

– 1 L of dill pickles

– 500ml of spicy pickled beans

– 1 L of kimchee

– 500ml of lemon dill sauerkraut

– 1 L of organic blueberry kefir

– 1 L maple miso salad dressing

– 2 X 250ml of live cultured hot sauce​


**If you are interested in the HALF share option, you would be getting half portions of the above

**​Where do you deliver to?
