ABOUT MY ORGANIC GARDEN
Garden2Plates was born out of a passion for gardening and eating healthy good food!
Our Vegetable Garden is based in Cantonments, Accra and our ethos is to supply handpicked salads and herbs when you order them. It doesn't get fresher than that, hence our name!
At present, all salads, greens and herbs are homegrown and the main focus is bringing different but delicious varieties of lettuce onto the market at affordable prices. Clean running water is the key to having crisp, sweet lettuce and we use plenty of that to water our produce.
We have now added fresh herbs to our produce line, these include Thyme, Coriander, Parsley, Garden Mint, Garlic Chives, Onion Chives, Oregano, Fennel (fronds and bulb), Dill, Tarragon (French and Russian) and Basil (Italian and Greek).
There are more varieties of mint than I knew when I started this journey and I will be bringing a few to the market soon. these include lemon mint, basil mint, moroccan mint, apple mint and chocolate mint. More varieties of thyme are also on the way, lemon thyme and broad leaf thyme to name a couple. We have also planted Rosemary bushes, lemon grass and a bay tree.
Over the last year I have been to many organic and specialist farming events and have made some amazing discoveries right here in Ghana. So I now partner with a select number farmers whose produce have been carefully screened by my customers. These include cucumbers, roma and rounds tomatoes from a hydroponic greenhouse in Aburi. Cherry tomatoes, sweet peppers, orange sweet potatoes an pineapples are now also on offer. To keep with our ethos of freshness we only buy on harvest days.
The best dishes use the freshest ingredients, simply cooked. Fresh produce with bags of flavour transforms the simplest meal into a Gourmet Feast. The best chefs in the world always talk about using fresh, locally available produce for any mouthwatering dish.
