Purple Dragon food Co-op

Anyone with experiences or who is a member of this Co-op?
We shared the share with another couple in summer 2009 and decided not to continue after the 3x trial period because it didn't seem worth it.
Fun to get different vegetables and try them out
The fruit was great
The produce isn't local so there are a lot of food miles (an issue for me)
It went bad very quickly - we picked up on Thursday and by Sunday we were throwing things away
I was a member for a number of years. Then their delivery schedule changed as did my work schedule and we were no longer compatible.
I was mainly happy with Purple Dragon. I loved picking up my box and being surprised by what was in it and then using some creativity to use it up.
Since I was never an organic fanatic, it did sort of bother me that much of the produce was shipped halfway across the world. For the past 2 seasons, I've been a member of a local CSA. Everything is homegrown within 20 miles of my house. I am enjoying this even more.
Thank you everyone. It looked like a share would be too much produce for me, but I was willing to explore it a bit
Again, ty for sharing.
