Not long ago everything started at our home table, now we have our own restaurant, yes! we have signed the lease for a great piece of Lyttelton on London St. with the opening planned to be in spring.
I have a great feeling about all of this because everything is happening when it needs to happen, our dream of having a sustainable restaurant is starting now with the planing of the back garden and glass house, an open kitchen where the product -our flora and fauna- are the star, a dinning environment created by people to reflect our interconnection with nature.
The flow of ideas don’t stop and I don’t want them to. I want to hear ideas, advise, comments, dreams, opinions… ways of making this vision and dream come true. If this is something you would like to be involved in some way please contact me.
We would love to see and support locals within our community to be apart of this vision whether it be from hand-made chefs jackets to permaculture garden design to solar panel installation to hand-made tables and chairs to staff. These doors are open for every kind of participation.
The dreams are big and we would love to have:
hand-made plates, tables, chairs, local suppliers and producers, sustainable design architects, verticle edible wall builders, mud-brick oven design and building, solar panel knowledge, builders, kitchen designers and suppliers, restaurant set-up and planning, knowledge and advice around sustainable finances, chicken coop designer and builder and the list goes on and on.
I can’t wait to see where we are in December…
