Take complete control of your farm to table initiative
The restaurant business is a tough one – staffing, changing tastes, competition, ingredient issues, inventory issues, etc., all seem to conspire to make this one of the most challenging (and rewarding) businesses to be in. If you want to stand out from the crowd, there are fewer and fewer ways to do this outside of the great food, great service combo platter. There is one way to take your game to the next level – and that is taking “local” and farm to table to another plateau by growing some of your own produce.
At Eco Garden Systems, we developed our Original Garden with you in mind – a talented chef with a focus on fresh who wants to control as much of the equation as possible – all with the Easy to Do label featured prominently. Our unique and scientifically tested system can help you in many ways:
- Community – your team is always interested in ways to pitch in and enhance their “shared purpose”. Unlock their hidden talents by letting them be the plant nurturers. You, of course, decide what to plant – but use their passion to help maintain your new garden.
- Sustainability – from easy to sustainable is a short step with an Eco Garden – the science behind the Original Garden (perforated Soil Platform, Water Reservoir and Air Gap) all work together to create a 2x speed to maturity, ~50% increase in production and a 65% lower water use.
- Performance – if the 2x speed and +50% didn’t grab your attention, how about getting the production of a 4’x12’ in-ground plot into a 4’x6’ raised garden bed – that can go almost anywhere (including a rooftop)?
The restaurant community is often built on cross-restaurant relationships. A very large but “small” community, you can even explore a sharing system – where you and some of the other chefs in your area work together to grow and share ingredients. While not for everyone, we have seen some pretty interesting ways for folks to work together – both for the individual restaurant community and for the larger “all restaurant” community to help the industry thrive in whatever town you happen to be in.
