Q.     Will everything served in the restaurant come from the farm?

A.     We are aiming to provide all of the greens, herbs and flowers for the
restaurant. 
The farm will aim to provide the bulk of the vegies served,

but any fruit and veg that will be supplemented will come from

farms and friends who practice nature-based farming techniques

 ie. chemical free and building soils via composting, worm farming and
returning organic matter to the soil. Our seafood and animal-based proteins are

sourced from a mix of carbon-neutral and ethically sourced producers and suppliers.

 

Q.      What kind of soil are you using, and where is it from?

A.     It is an engineered soil created specifically for rooftops. 

Our rooftop soil needs to be lightweight due to weight restrictions.

 All of the soil elements are natural - clay, sand, coconut fibre, compost.

 

Q.     Is your soil organic / biodynamic?

A.     The way the farm is managed through fertilisers, soil treatment,

pest management and more utilises techniques and guidelines 

from organic farming, biodynamic and sustainable agriculture.

In short though, no we are not certified organic
