The Russet Kitchen Garden
Project Category: Business
Located round the back of the venue, The Russet Cafe has a small kitchen garden, growing a variety of food and flowers and keeping live quail. A functional demonstration site for urban food growing, the garden provides The Russet’s kitchen with a regular supply of organically grown edibles whilst helping to promote, enhance and protect local biodiversity.
The Russet’s grower works closely with the head chef, to ensure that the kitchen receives a fresh and steady supply of quickly perishable produce, and with the cafe’s manager to ensure that customers have access to a steady supply of potted edible plants for sale.
Customers of The Russet (especially little ones) are welcome and encouraged to visit the garden space, all the wild birds and insects that have made their home in the garden and our very own kept quails, on any day of the week.
The Russet Cafe serves a variety healthy dishes made with locally sourced ingredients where possible, as well as teas, coffees, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks.
A weekly volunteer session allows those interested in food growing to get some hands on experience in a productive urban garden. Every Thursday from 12 – 4.
