Inspiring, thought-provoking and ingenious

By Greenhouse Team On February 23, 2011

“Inspiring, thought-provoking and ingenious, get to the Greenhouse before it closes at the end of March 2011.” are the words used by Helen from (Grab your Fork) in her blog post.

Greenhouse by Joost is the latest pop-up restaurant to hit Sydney, an eco-friendly vision that doubles as a unique interactive art installation.

The converted shipping container looks right at home in Campbell Cove, its facade painted with butterflies and children. The entrance on the side is covered with miniature strawberry pots.

The commitment to waste-free commences with suppliers. All fresh produce and milk must be delivered in returnable containers. Wheat bags are opened with care so they can be sent back to the local farmer for re-use. An onsite flour mill is used to grind the wheat into flour for bread and pizza. Every scrap from the kitchen is composted and used on the rooftop herb garden.
