Live Off The Fat Of The Land At This Pop-Up Dining Experience On An Urban Farm

We can all agree that getting healthier is one New Year resolution that needs to stick around all year. Lucky for us, Aotearoa is home to some of the best fresh produce in the world, and here’s your chance to sit down to dinner right in the middle of an organic farm just a hop, skip, and a jump away at Kelmarna Gardens in the heart of Ponsonby.

That’s right, the inner-city sustainable farm has collaborated with Forest on Symonds street to create a unique farm to table experience. Farm Dinners will be plating a delicious five-course menu using Kelmarna’s organic seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs.

The four-day festival will raise funds for the farms’ work on creating a regenerative local food system so you can chow down knowing you're also doing good at the same time—50% of the ticket price will go to a charitable trust to support the community.

If you want to learn about sustainable farming or simply eat some delicious kai (both vegetarian and vegan), make your booking now as these have sold out every time for the last three years. You have been warned.

Grab your tickets here or visit Kelmarna Gardens on Facebook.
