Event description

Description

2018 brings forth an exciting collection of monthly talk series to be held on the farm. These nights will include and involve local and young regenerative farmers, innovative people working in food, food waste and sustainability in fun/friendly discussions and panels. Our goal is to create a community of mindful humans through connectivity and shared experience. We believe that real-life interaction, conversations and local Australian stories will allow us to do so.

April's conversation is going to be driven by sustainable chefs and people working in the Sydney food industry. With growing consumer interest in locally sourced food and organics, there has been a subsequent shift of attention within chefs and business' to source local produce, grow food themselves and reduce waste within their kitchens. Taste is everything and it is now under general consensus that fresh, organic produce that hasn't travelled thousands of kilometres to arrive on a plate just simply tastes better.

The conversation will revolve around why these people have chosen a sustainable practice and the subsequent benefits of such ethics and principles. You will hear from The Three Blue Ducks, Alfie's Kitchen crew and the head chef of Acre, the restaurant that shares the space with Pocket City Farms.

There are more additions coming to this panel so keep your eyes peeled!


Cost: $20

Provided: Your first drink from Young Henrys (donations will be taken for every bev after your first)

THE PANEL

THREE BLUE DUCKS piloted their renowned name in a small shop front in Bronte. However they have now expanded to Rosebery and now own and run 'The Farm' in Byron Bay. Kickstarted by a bunch of mates who take food seriously their restaurants are underpinned by strong, ethical values. These being, honest, innovative and locally sourced produce and sustainable food and environmental practices.

HELLENE + JOEY from Alfie's Kitchen are creative masterminds when it comes to plant-based food. Together they have created a business that delivers fine vegan dining, catering and pop-up events which have literally been 'popping-up' all over Sydney and broader NSW. They have strong beliefs in minimising the food waste within their business and are passionate about education surrounding issues of waste, sustainability and plant based diets. Check them out on their socials.

GARETH is the Head Chef at Acre. This is the restaurant that shares the space with Pocket City Farms and uses some of the produce grown on site. Gareth and the rest of his crew aim to educate customers on food consumption and production. They achieve this by providing a sustainable and delicious plate of food that is a better alternative to the sugar-filled and salty processed foods usually seen in the supermarkets.
