Living Lab

 

A Living Lab - closed-loop food ecosystem 

We have also developed a close-loop sustainable ecosystem, whereby waste food products from our kitchen can be converted into renewable biogas and liquid fertilizer. The biogas may be used both for cooking and heating our indoor growing spaces in winter whilst the fertilizer enhances plant growth for our kitchen produce. The Living Lab project will be developed into an environmental educational facility.

Our sustainable Cafe:

Just over a year ago, we opened the Calthorpe Cafe , offering delicious home-cooked and vegetarian food, prepared with organic ingredients grown in our garden. The produce grown at the Calthorpe Project is tended and harvested largely by volunteers from the local community who we offer horticultural training and work placements. Our customers are able to take advantage of eating outside in our beautiful outdoor space or, in less favorable weather conditions, in our indoor space furnished with generous donations from Ikea.

What are we raising the money for?

With the popularity of the Cafe growing significantly over the last year, we are currently raising money to improve the standard of the café and provide it with much-needed equipment. Besides being able to serve our customers more efficiently, it will also help us in training our volunteers with learning disabilities to gain confidence in kitchen and cooking skills.  We would additionally hope to be able to employ some of our volunteers who have ben dedicating their free time to help establish the café. 

 

How will your donation make a difference?

With the help of your donations, we will be able to upgrade our cafe with new equipment such as food processor, blender, any other utensils which will enable us to serve our customers with great food at the cafe. 

We aim to employ some of our volunteers that have been working with us and helping us serve our customers. Our volunteers come from various backgrounds, and work, skills and being part of an inclusive community is making a big difference in their lives. 

Anyone can enjoy the food we make, but also take part in fun activities and volunteering programs.
