OrganicLea and the Clove Club restaurant have joined forces to trial an innovative ‘chef-supported agriculture’ system on a plot in Leyton. The Michelin-starred restaurant had been dreaming of having their own farm for years, ideally growing fresh produce as close to their Shoreditch-based restaurant as possible.
Earlier this year they began funding two growers from OrganicLea’s Farm Start project to set up a picturesque little growing site on Marsh Lane in return for all the produce grown there. This model provides a reliable, year-round income for growers and allows the restaurant to source super-fresh, ethical and local produce grown from their crop wish list.
If you would like to visit the site and meet the OrganicLea team of growers as well as a representative from the Clove Club, this is your opportunity! We hope to inspire other outlets to start similar projects and are particularly keen to welcome chefs, grocery shop owners and other retailers to this event, but all are welcome!
