CELEBRATING EARTH DAY WITH BOTANICALS

Amidst the gardens , tree canopies and burble of waterfall at Adventure Farm, sustainability took center stage in a jubilant celebration of Earth 🌍 Day 2024. Partnering with EABL's Tanqueray Gin, the farm orchestrated a symphony of flavors and eco-conscious practices, inviting guests to immerse themselves in a holistic experience of regenerative agriculture, renewable energy, and gastronomic delights.

 



The event unfolded as a harmonious blend of nature's gifts and human ingenuity. From circular food production to innovative recycling techniques, every aspect of the occasion echoed a commitment to preserving and nourishing our planet.

 

At the heart of the festivities lay the concept of "Farm to Fork," a philosophy that champions locally sourced, sustainable ingredients. Adventure Farm's chefs expertly curated a menu brimming with flavors nurtured on the very land guests roamed. Among the highlights was the Pulled Goose Tacos, a culinary masterpiece slow-cooked in an underground pit and adorned with pickled shallots, arugula, and avocado crème—a testament to the farm's dedication to culinary excellence and environmental stewardship.

 

Throughout the event, guests had the opportunity to witness firsthand the farm's regenerative agricultural practices. From organic farming techniques to vermiculture-powered composting, Adventure Farm showcased the transformative potential of sustainable agriculture. As guests toured the farm, they gained insights into how such practices not only minimize environmental impact but also enrich soil health and biodiversity.

 

In line with its commitment to sustainability, Adventure Farm also showcased its renewable energy initiatives i.e circular production which includes producing and using biogas. These alternative energy sources not only reduce the farm's carbon footprint but also serve as a testament to the power of innovation in mitigating climate change. Additionally, guests were introduced to the farm's recycling and composting efforts, demonstrating how waste can be repurposed to enrich the soil and close the loop on resource consumption.

 

An expert panel, featuring luminaries such as Maryanne Nderu (Sustainability manager, EABL Foundation & Diageo in Society), Marianne Mwaniki (Director at Adventure Farm, Ex-Vice Chairman Visa Foundation and Global SVP Impact Visa) and Dorcas Jalang'o (Senior Research Associate – Climate Action , International Centre for Tropical Agriculture) delved into the intersection of sustainability and organizational strategy. Through insightful discussions, attendees gained valuable perspectives on how businesses can integrate environmental sustainability into their core operations, driving positive change on both local and global scales.

 

As the sun set on Adventure Farm, guests were invited to forage for botanicals, embarking on a sensory journey through nature's bounty. Guided by skilled artisans, they collected an array of herbs and spices i.e Dill , Mint ,Oregano ,Parsley ,Rosemary and Thyme each imbued with the essence of the land. These botanical treasures would later find their way into exquisite gin-infused creations, a fitting homage to the farm's partnership with Tanqueray Gin and a celebration of botanical diversity.

 

As the festivities drew to a close, one sentiment rang clear: Adventure Farm's unwavering commitment to sustainability is not just a fleeting trend but a guiding principle woven into the fabric of its existence. Through events like this Botanical Extravaganza, the farm not only educates and inspires but also nurtures a community of like-minded individuals dedicated to safeguarding our planet for future generations.

 

In the words of Marianne Mwaniki, "We delight in curating bespoke experiences for organizations and inspiring us all to embrace sustainability to enrich our lives." Indeed, at Adventure Farm, sustainability isn't just a buzzword—it's a way of life.

 

For those who attended, the Botanical Extravaganza was more than just an event; it was a reminder of the profound beauty and resilience of our natural world—a call to action to cherish, protect, and savor Mother Nature's bounty, today and for years to come.
