Wednesday, December 5th, 6.30pm.
On December 5th, we have a very special multi-cultural homegrown night featuring Ellie Kisyombe, the founder of Our Table. This event will highlight the challenges faced by residents of direct provision centres, particularly in relation to growing, cooking and eating their own food. Ellie Kisyombe is a direct provision resident herself and founded Our Table to create nurturing and empathetic events and spaces where people from Direct Provision can gain skills, a wage and knowledge of the Irish food industry. It is a non-profit, non-demoninational organisation that aims to build an awareness of food in multicultural Ireland and to highlight that the current system of Direct Provision is deeply flawed.
homegrown is GIY’s new series of seasonal long-table dinners at GROW HQ featuring visiting chefs who share the homegrown ethos. The event showcases their talents, and gets them to build on the HQ story by delivering a very special seasonal feast for just 55 diners. GIY invite them to take over the kitchen and the garden to prepare their meal and Head Grower Richard Mee is available to help them graze, harvest and forage.
The price includes a 4 course meal, and a complimentary drink on arrival.
