Raw food hits the spot

30 Aug 2011

By Bethany Williams

Urban Reforestation raised $700 for the Docklands community garden relocation project by holding a Raw Food Feast last month.

The 55 people who attended the event were treated to a four-course raw, organic, gourmet dinner prepared by Omid Jaffari.

Omid is a world-class chef and the creator of “botanical cuisine”, a style of raw food preparation.

“Botanical cuisine focuses on seasonal, organic, heirloom produce, which alone should be enough to please the eyes and palate,” Omid said.

Omid provided his culinary skills for the Raw Food Feast voluntarily.

“Omid gave a lot to Docklands and Urban Reforestation by being our chef at this event. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without his efforts,” Urban Reforestation founder and director Emily Ballantyne-Brodie said.

Additionally, Melbourne-based organic food company Loving Earth donated produce for the feast.

The money raised by the Raw Food Feast will go towards the relocation of Docklands community garden.

The garden is currently located in Merchant St and will be moved to its new site on the corner of Geographe St and Keera Way within the next six months.

“The garden is currently at a transitional site, but we will have a permanent site very soon and we want people living in Docklands to engage with the garden,” Ms Ballantyne-Brodie said.

Ms Ballantyne-Brodie urged anyone interested in getting involved with the Docklands community garden to attend the final design presentation at The Hub (80 Harbour Esplanade) on Wednesday, September 7 from 7pm until 8pm.
