New Kitchen Garden at Schoonera's Bar & Grill
11May 2015

Monday, 11 May, 2015…… The Food & Beverage Team at Schooner’s Bar & Grill, under the guidance of F&B Manager Anita Parsons, has initiated a new Kitchen Garden Project.

Along the lines of the global “Centre to table” culinary movement, the team has started a small potted garden to expand the restaurant’s usage of local produce.

Currently, the garden includes scallion (green onion), parsley, and baby tomatoes.

The Schooner’s Kitchen Garden is located on the patio next to the restaurant kitchen and the plants are growing in containers. The Schooner’s team incorporates used coffee grounds from the Schooner’s signature blend coffee as compost for the garden.

“The goal is to be able to use the garden's bounty for our future monthly menus to enhance our local offerings,” said Ms. Parsons.
