Zero Waste Cafe

Cafe: Our award-winning cafe serves the most nutritious, delicious, seasonal food and we put our veg centre stage (but we also showcase the finest free-range, local meat, poultry, fish and cheese). Mostly the distance from plot to plate is about 112 steps. Richard and the garden team grow it, JB and kitchen team cook it, and our lovely customers eat it! Expect a warm, bright and good humoured welcome with a food ethos that’s home-grown, fresh, organic, healthy and delicious.

The HQ Food Truck

Food Truck: Good news, you can also enjoy HQ grub on the go! Disconnect from everyday stress and visit our food truck that offers soup & sandwiches, sweet treats plus daily specials. We also have a selection of coffees, teas,  organic apple and orange juices along with our HQ homemade kombuchas. While you’re there, take a stroll around the HQ Gardens and surround yourself in nature.

 

 

GROW HQ Scavenger hunt

Family Scavenger Hunt

Let the wild ones roam. Grab a free kids map and scavenge the gardens and woodland for all kinds of plants, bees and butterflies. Get those hands dirty at the seed sowing station and take the food growing adventure home. Learn all about GROW HQ’s natural kingdom that combines to create each meal. Enjoy a delicious family meal on the terrace or in the garden, and don’t forget an ice cream or a seasonal cordial from The Shack before heading off with a head full of happy memories.

GROW HQ Woodland Escape

Woodland Escape

Find a moment of calm in a secluded woodland behind the vegetable garden. Disappear from the urban world into this unexpected forest atmosphere surrounded by native trees and hidden wildlife. Take a seat or sprawl out in the clearing, disconnect from everyday stress and reconnect with the beat of nature. Enjoy a mindful moment, or simply mull over the mezze menu that awaits.
