About The Garden:
The Grounds of Alexandria opens onto an abundant organic garden overflowing with heirloom vegetables, edible flowers, fragrant herbs, fresh fruit and a small animal farm including resident pig, Kevin Bacon.
An ageing brick wall covered with creeping vines provides the perimeter for the garden that offers both an urban sanctuary and a daily source of fresh produce for the kitchen at The Grounds to use in our seasonally inspired menu.
The wide selection of produce is grown in the recycled sleeper planter boxes and garden beds, based on a sustainable permaculture approach that is closely guided by nature’s way. The Garden at The Grounds uses organic methods to maintain the soil fertility, including green manure crops, companion planting and rotation.
The Garden also plays host to a number of take-away food offerings including an organic Juice Bar pumping out a selection of create-your-own healthy options using fresh, raw produce and a charcoal Aussie style BBQ cooking up the best burgers and other mouth-watering offerings straight off the grill. You will also always find a ready supply of coffee and sweet bakery treats amongst the green, sustainable space.
Why not get your Café meal takeaway and enjoy it in the sun surrounded by our own little oasis. Our guests are free to roam The Garden and explore what we have on offer. Plenty of seats for you and your friends to relax, and enjoy your meal.
