SOWING THE SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE
A pioneering partnership with biodynamic gardening expert, Phil Dewhurst is revolutionising food production in the kitchen gardens at Northcote.
Northcote has long been respected for its commitment to sourcing the finest regional produce and possessing a keen interest in the benefits of sustainable and organic food production. This has led to a succesful partnership with gardening expert, Phil Dewhurst and the implementation of a biodynamic gardening scheme in the grounds of the hotel.
Over the past few years agriculture has become incredibly industrialised which has resulted in cheaper food but this doesn’t always take into consideration the real cost to both the health of humans and the wellbeing of the environment. The aim of the garden project is to enhance the life forces within the plot in order to enhance the quality, flavour and nutritional content of the produce grown on the doorstep of the hotel.
The success is already visible with over 90 varieties of fruits and vegetables having made the short journey from the garden into the experienced hands of the chefs in Northcote’s busy kitchen.
